Why Choose Liberty’s School of Nursing Bachelor’s Degree?

If you are looking to become a registered nurse, you need a program that prepares you to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of your future patients. At Liberty, we have designed our nursing bachelor’s degree to equip you to address each of those areas with excellence and integrity.

Our Standard of Academic Excellence

The baccalaureate degree program in nursing, master’s degree program in nursing, Doctor of Nursing Practice program, and the post-graduate APRN certificate program at Liberty University School of Nursing are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).

Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). What does that mean for you as a student? CCNE is one of the most recognized accrediting agencies in the nation, and employers look for it when hiring nurses. You will instantly stand out with this accreditation behind you.

Additionally, our School of Nursing has the philosophy that students do better in their career the more they are exposed to real patient care situations. Because of this, we offer nearly 800 clinical hours for our students, which is 300 hours more than Virginia’s minimum for licensure. Also, while other schools do not allow their nursing students to start clinical hours until their junior year, we allow our students to start as sophomores! 

Our Goal of Professional Integrity

As a nurse, you will handle life and death situations, sometimes with only seconds to act. The “Nightingale Pledge,” an oath made by nurses nationwide, proclaims a commitment to ethical practice as a nursing professional. In addition to what the rest of the world pledges, we as a Christian university want to equip you for those situations with courage, confidence, and integrity founded on biblical principles.

Our mission is to Train Champions for Christ, and we believe that the field of healthcare needs champions like you! Be prepared to help the broken-hearted, answer hard questions from patients’ loved ones, and show Christ’s love through it all with professionalism and grace.
