Why Nursing?

Nursing is a fulfilling career in which you can serve God by caring for people and helping patients/clients and communities achieve optimal wholeness and health.  It is in nursing that you will share sacred moments of joy and pain with patients. 

Nurses have the opportunity to touch the lives of individuals blending caring, science and technology to holistically address health needs; mind, body and spirit.
