Excellent academics, real clinical experience, faith-based teaching

Calvin nursing graduates are immediate assets to hospitals and clinics, due to their excellent clinical skills, caring approach to patients, outstanding work ethic, and leadership skills. That's why in 2016, 100 percent of Calvin nursing graduates found jobs in their field or were in graduate school within one year of graduation.


Admissions to Calvin's nursing program is competitive: it accepts a limited number of students each year to the program. You can apply to the program in your sophomore year after completing six prerequisite courses. The final three required prerequisite courses need to be completed in Spring semester of sophomore year.
