We have been educating nurses since 1903
Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences is affiliated with Saint Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City. In 1905, Saint Luke's Hospital established a diploma school of nursing offering a three-year course of study as a department within the hospital. From its inception, nurses were educated at the diploma level and in 1995 the College earned accreditation as a baccalaureate degree-granting institution.
On May 28, 2010, the College was incorporated as a standalone 501(c)(3) educational institution with Saint Luke’s Hospital as the sole member of the corporation. Located just north of Saint Luke’s Hospital in Westport, the College offers Undergraduate and Graduate Programs in nursing. The BSN Track enrolls students directly from their first two years of college as well as students who have earned a bachelor’s in a different field and would like to make a career change to nursing. The RN-BSN Track is offered online to licensed nurses looking to complete their BSN degree.The Graduate Program consists of three tracks: Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nursing Practitioner (AG-ACNP), Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), and Nurse Educator. Graduate classes are fully online for the nurse educator program and mostly online for the AG-ACNP and FNP programs. The AG-ACNP and FNP program requires 2-3 on-campus visits during the program.
