Our program is different. While our nursing program is intense and competitive, our professors have a passion for supporting you throughout your academic journey. We may be a big school, but we have a small family feel.

Looking to expand your horizons? Cultivate your nursing skills with our distant clinical sites and international clinical mission trips. These provide an incredible opportunity to see more patients of specific demographics, like children, or to get a true feel for life as a medical missionary. Join our Liberty family and see how far you can go!
