Saint Luke’s College held Commencement on December 9 for 84 BSN, 24 RN-BSN, and two Post-Graduate Certificate students.
“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.
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.
Saint Luke's College has partnered with Univision Kansas City television to expand awareness of the College to the Hispanic Community.
