Career opportunities in nursing are varied, abundant, and increasing. Begun in 1975, the Luther College department of nursing has developed a baccalaureate program in nursing with a strong foundation in the liberal arts, including the natural and social sciences, humanities, and nursing. The third year of the program is spent in Rochester, Minn., associated with the world renowned Mayo Foundation Hospitals.
The program is designed for basic prelicensure nursing students. It provides a solid basis for graduate study in nursing. It is also possible to complete a major in nursing and a minor in another area, such as psychology, religion, or language. The nursing faculty are prepared to advise you about all possible options and the limitless roles and settings where nurses work.
The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE, One Dupont Circle NW, Suite 530, Washington, D.C. 20036-1120; 202-887-6791; www.aacn.nche.edu/accreditation).
