Director's Greeting

Welcome to Cedarville University School of Nursing and the Graduate Nursing Program.

Our desire is to prepare you to fulfill God’s purpose for your life through the ministry of nursing. We are eager to equip you to work effectively to meet the needs of individuals, families, and populations locally and throughout the world. Enhancing your personal spiritual growth and Christian character is a priority for us.

The Lord, your family, your friends, your church family, and others have prepared you to accomplish the goals set before you. As faculty, we will coach you, encourage you, and love you as you keep these thoughts before you:

Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. – I Corinthians 10:31

Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. – Philippians 1:6

Serving our Lord Jesus Christ,
Kim Higginbotham, D.N.P.
