A Comprehensive Approach to a Career in Health Care

Students chosen for our nursing programs learn quickly that they are being prepared for success in a 21st century profession. We integrate the art and science of critical thinking, communication, ethics, health advocacy, caring alternative healing methods and culturally appropriate care.

We emphasize basic holistic nursing concepts and skills, wellness and ways to address the changing needs of clients, families and communities. We partner with agencies across the state to give our students rich and diverse clinical learning experiences in their final one-month capstone experience.

The Nursing program at St. Cloud State University is approved by the Minnesota State Board of Nursing and graduates are qualified to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and earn certification as public health nurses. School nurse licensure is also an option.
