Welcome to the Cedarville University School of Nursing. The goal of our nationally accredited programs is to prepare nursing professionals who excel in godly living, compassionate care, cultural sensitivity, and information management to use nursing as a ministry for Jesus Christ. Cedarville nursing graduates deliver care from a strong knowledge base grounded in the Bible, the art and science of nursing, the biological and behavioral sciences, and the humanities.
As a student in Cedarville's nursing program, you will benefit from rigorous classroom instruction, simulation, practical laboratory, and clinical experiences in state-of-the-art nursing facilities. The nursing courses focus on professional nursing practice, health promotion and wellness, care of the sick in and across all environments, and culturally sensitive care. You will also learn nursing roles as providers, designers, coordinators, and managers of care through the use of evidence-based practice and the development of strong clinical judgment. At Cedarville, nursing is more than learning information and practicing skills. You will also be prepared for a lifetime of compassionate ministry and experience how your relationship with God directly influences the nursing care you provide.
Cedarville's Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree provides you with the education necessary to make strong clinical judgments, advance your career, and become a leader in nursing. Building on Cedarville's strong B.S.N. program that supplies qualified nurses locally and around the world, the Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) program provides in-depth, professional, and advanced practice study for nurses to expand their knowledge of health care delivery, clinical expertise, nursing leadership, use of evidence-based research, and academic scholarship grounded in biblical truth. Students entering the program may choose to study one of three emphases: family nurse practitioner, nurse educator, or global health ministries. Cedarville nursing graduates are using nursing as ministry to serve the Lord across the nation and around the world. I invite you to become a part of nursing at Cedarville University.
