Students Get Involved and Create Lasting Friendships

Students never have a shortage of opportunities to get involved. In fact, from the moment they enroll in their first credit hour, BSN students are considered part of the Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences Student Nursing Association (SLSNA).
The SLSNA organization promotes personal and professional development and serves as an avenue for student input into programs at the College.

Student Resource Center Supports Success

You’ve heard it before, “Hard work is the key to success.” At Saint Luke’s College, we work hard to ensure our students’ success. When students expressed a need for enhanced support, we partnered with Dr. Howard and Nancy Aks to create the Student Resource Center (SRC).

The Aks family has provided a student scholarship which honors Howard’s parents, Dr. Daniel and Doris Aks for a number of years. But as the College developed the SRC, they provided a lead gift of $30,000 which enabled the College to obtain another matching gift.

Scholarship Recipients and Donors Give Thanks

“Saint Luke’s College saved my life,” said Director of RN-BSN Track and Assistant Professor Beth Cita, MSN, RN. “I had four children and was working as a waitress when I decided to go back to school,” she said, “without the scholarships, I wouldn’t have been able to complete my nursing degree.” 

Beth spoke to a full house during the Scholarship Reception on Monday evening November 7, 2016. The Scholarship Reception honors students who have received a scholarship from a living donor and the donors who make these scholarships possible.

Honor Society holds its fall induction

On Monday, October 3, 2016, Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences inducted 50 new members into its Nursing Honor Society. The event took place at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, Mo.

The College is true to its commitment to community outreach and diversity

As the country celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month, the College is keeping its promise of reaching out to the community, celebrating multiculturalism and expanding its efforts to promote diversity.
The last several weeks have been very important; personally and institutionally. Last week, I received an invitation to be a guest in a radio show hosted by Leidy Quitian Varon from the Civil Rights Division of the KCMO Human Relations Department.
