Union College – Nebraska

Union College, the best nursing program in Nebraska, has open seats for our 5 semester Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program starting this January 2018 – APPLY TODAY!

Here’s why Union College’s nursing program is one of the best:

Our nursing graduates had the highest NCLEX-RN pass rate in the state of Nebraska for 2016 (97%) and 2015 (94%) and consistently score at least 10% above the national average!

The nursing curriculum is only five semesters long! – If you start in January 2018, you would be done by May 2020!

Clinical rotations begin the first semester of the nursing program and are held in all the major hospital systems in Lincoln as well as in the community. Small class sizes of 30 students in a lecture and an average of 6 students in a clinical group ensure that you will get individualized attention and your professor will know you by your first name. Every student in each clinical course utilizes the state-of-the-art Simulation Center multiple times each semester. Our faith-based program prepares students to care for patients holistically – mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
A minor in leadership can be completed simultaneously with the BSN degree.

The Global Health Nursing elective course creates an opportunity to travel to Nicaragua over Spring Break to provide care to the Miskito Indians.
As the first BSN program in the state of Nebraska, our students and graduates are part of a long-standing tradition of excellence.
We have LPN to BSN and RN to BSN tracks available if you’re already a nurse and want to finish your BSN.

If you’ve been searching for a nursing program with a tradition of excellence, small class sizes, and professors committed to your success, you’ve found it! Apply today! Visit our website for more information.
