Why study nursing at a liberal arts college?

Liberal Arts Advantage 

Studying at a liberal arts college facilitates the development of a well-rounded individual. It is especially beneficial for a nurse because the nursing profession requires a person who can interact with everyone.


What has been the biggest challenge for you?

Time Management 

The biggest challenge has been time management. Nursing requires a lot of work, but it is also important to take time for yourself by doing the things you enjoy.


What stands out about the CSB/SJU nursing program?

Outstanding Faculty

The best thing about the nursing program is the way the professors treat you! They are approachable and always willing to answer questions outside of class. They are also willing to help with any problems that may arise.


What advice do you have for students considering a major in nursing?

Live in the Moment

For students considering a nursing major, I would suggest working hard. Also, try not to stress yourself out. It can be very overwhelming to think about the application process, but try to focus on the here and now.
