LeTourneau University now offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program, which was approved by the Texas Board of Nursing in 2014.
Upon university grounds that once housed Harmon General Hospital, an army hospital providing care for wounded veterans returning from World War II, LeTourneau continues its legacy of innovative, hands-on instruction as it prepares graduates to make an impact compassionately and competently meeting the needs of patients and families.
In this four-year residential program, students work side-by-side with professional nurses to facilitate their learning and maximize their clinical experience. Students develop the exceptional communication and critical thinking skills required to excel on-the-job in one of the nation's most in-demand professions. Students benefit from:
After graduation, students will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN® exam) and begin their nursing career in one of many settings with high demand for qualified nurses: acute care hospitals, primary care clinics, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, international missions, corporate offices, health promotion facilities/organizations, community agencies, faith-based organizations, schools, and more.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 19% over the next decade. LETU nursing students graduate prepared to meet this need and make a crucial, eternal impact in countless lives over the course of their careers.
The nursing faculty and staff at LeTourneau are committed to more than educating highly skilled and exceptionally trained nurses. We believe that men and women are divinely called into the profession of nursing to glorify God through ministry to His people. Our instruction reflects our view—that all people are created in the image of God, have value, and deserve expert care during times of health crisis, excellent health care education, and exceptional illness prevention strategies.
