President's Announcement: A bright future awaits our re-energized College

Welcome to the 2017-18 academic year!
 
Let me start by thanking our new students, their parents, their children and their significant others for entrusting Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences with your education. To returning students, I hope this new academic year is at least as positive as the prior and wish that you continue to embrace and fall in love with Saint Luke’s College.

Record Number of Graduates Earn Saint Luke’s College Degrees

On May 13, 2017, 136 Saint Luke’s College nursing students received bachelor’s and master’s of science in nursing degrees and post-graduate certificates. This was the largest number of students to graduate in the College’s 114-year history.

 “This large graduating class reflects what is happening in health care and at the College,” said College President Hubert Benitez, DDS, PhD. “As health care continues to change and expand, the College continues to expand its quality nursing programs while developing allied health degrees to fulfill workplace demand.”

Demand for advanced practice nurses continues to grow

Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences will launch another master’s degree in fall 2017 in the area of Family Nurse Practitioner with an emphasis in mental health. 

Most experts agree that demand for advanced practice registered nurses will only continue to grow into the near future. In their most recent report, “Missouri’s Nursing Workforce – 2015,” the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services concludes that these nurses will “play a critical role in filling the gap in access to primary care services in most, if not all areas of Missouri.”

Progress, growth and differentiation: the College continues to act on its Vision 2020 Strategic Plan

The year 2016 was a remarkable year at Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences. Guided by its principles and values of professionalism, respect, integrity and respecting high academic standards, the College reached a number of important milestones. First, the College successfully completed its reaccreditation process with the Higher Learning Commission – we met all of the Commission’s criteria for accreditation and the Commission continued the accreditation of the College with the next reaffirmation of accreditation in 2025-2026.
