Excellent academics, real clinical experience, faith -based teaching.

Academic excellence

Calvin nursing students graduate well-equipped for graduate school or a career in their field; in a highly competitive job market, 100% of our nursing graduates are in school or a job within a year of graduation. This means that our program is also competitive, accepting a limited number of students each year. The program admissions page details the process of applying to join our program.

Community vision

Our vision for nursing is firmly rooted in meeting the unique needs and challenges of real communities, with an emphasis on practical work and real clinical experience. Your student experience will see you working in local hospitals, neighborhood clinics, or schools. Optional interims abroad in places like Nepal, Mexico, or China will give you hands-on experience working in diverse cultural environments and with different healthcare systems.


The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Calvin University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
