Welcome to Bethel College School of Nursing!

We are excited to welcome you to the Bethel College School of Nursing website. Whether you are considering becoming a registered nurse or wish to advance your nursing career, we hope that you will find Bethel College a good fit for you.

Our nursing programs prepare graduates in a Christian liberal arts environment to provide holistic care in a variety of health settings. Pre-licensure students may choose to pursue either a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN).  Both programs prepare graduates to take NCLEX, the national licensing examination.

If you are exploring options to advance your nursing career, we offer a Bachelor of Science Completion program, designed to meet the needs of nurses who are returning to school to obtain a BSN. This program prepares practicing nurses for career advancement and future graduate studies.

We also offer a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program with two tracks, Nurse Educator and Nurse Administrator. These programs enable practicing nurses to gain the skills needed to practice in an educational (either academic or clinical) setting or an advanced administrative role.

Students in all of our programs benefit from obtaining a well-respected Christ-centered education that is taught by caring professors who are actively involved in student learning.

We invite you to learn more about our ACEN accredited programs by contacting our nursing admissions counselors for more information. Please contact Sharon Duerksen (574.807.7324) for Bethel campus ADN/BSN programs and Kathy Deak (574.807.7570) for the Completion, MSN, and off-campus programs.

We look forward to sharing our School of Nursing with you!
