Our students today are the health care leaders of tomorrow


Saint Luke’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences is an educational leader serving exceptional students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in nursing and in additional health professions. Our students graduate with a degree that is not siloed within their discipline, but appreciative of others within their college and community.


Our unique programs are designed to prepare graduates to become health professionals who can meet the health care needs of diverse populations and work in a variety of organizations. Each degree is built upon active-learning techniques including simulation, hands-on activities, and service-learning.
