School of Nursing

LeTourneau University now offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program.  Recently approved by the Texas Board of Nursing, the LETU School of Nursing is now accepting applications for students to begin coursework in Fall 2014.


A Heritage of Healing

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. 


Unrivaled Faculty Engagement & Clinical Training

In this four-year residential program, students will work side-by-side with professional nurses to facilitate their learning and maximize their clinical experience. They'll also 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:

  • Highly engaged professors with a focus on high standards of care and ingenuity
  • Small class sizes, one-on-one attention, and a diverse faculty
  • Foundational emphasis on the expression of Christian virtue through competent nursing care and leadership
  • Extensive clinical experiences to explore career options (20+ agency partnerships in the East Texas area)


Unparalelled Career Opportunities

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.

Unwavering Integration of Faith & Learning

The nursing faculty & 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. And 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.
