School of Nursing

The U.S. needs 21% more nurses through 2025. And the need for LeTourneau nursing graduates—of the highest integrity, quality, mission-mindedness and Christ-like compassion—is even more substantial. At LETU, you'll benefit from small class sizes and superior clinical groups with individualized attention. Our students obtain more than 900 clinical hours, most of which are spent in a real health care environment with actual patients.

LeTourneau University offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program, which was approved by the Texas Board of Nursing in 2014. The Baccalaureate degree program in nursing at LeTourneau University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, 655 K Street NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001, 202-887-6791.


Unparalleled 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 15% 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 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.
