Department of Nursing

Message from the Department Chair

I’m pleased you’ve chosen to investigate nursing at Roberts Wesleyan College via our web site. Nursing is one of the essential health professions designed to serve people without regard to color, race, creed, or economic status. Nurses serve in places of residence or work, community settings, institutions, or agencies. Men and women with Christian ideals and values, prepared in a balanced program of liberal arts and professional education, are well equipped to contribute meaningfully to the health of individuals, groups, and communities.

The mission of the Department of Nursing is to advance the profession of nursing through education, practice and scholarship within a supportive Christian environment for students, staff and faculty.  The reputation of the Department is of excellence in nursing education and our alumni are respected and sought-after in the health care community. These alumni have graduated from one of the programs offered by the Department of Nursing:

  • The Traditional Program for those who have not earned a previous nursing degree
  • The Modular RN to BS Program for working RNs with an associate's degree who want to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
  • The Master of Science in Nursing for nurses with a bachelor's degree who want to earn a master's degree in Nursing.

Enjoy your visit!
