The Calvin University Department of Nursing equips students in the Reformed Christian tradition to be God's agents of renewal as:

  • Exceptional professionals and leaders
  • Image-bearing community partners at the local, regional, and global levels
  • Advocates for health transformation and health equity among diverse populations

The department fosters commitment to the triune God; core values such as empathy, humility, compassion, justice, and faith; and insightful and creative participation in society. The context for nursing education includes the learning community of the university as well as the healthcare community, the professional nursing community, and the world community in which Christian service takes place.
