A stimulating academic environment focuses on the discovery, scholarship and practice to address societal needs for nursing and other health care services.
Saint Luke's College of Health Sciences aspires to be a leading educational institution for preparing professionals in the healing arts. Further, we seek to continue our collaborative relationship with the region's quality leader, Saint Luke's Hospital and the Saint Luke's Health System, thus affording our students leading-edge clinical educational opportunities. We envision growing to become a comprehensive college of health professions with students pursuing educational programs in multiple disciplines.
