School of Nursing

Graceland University offers online programs for students at all levels of nursing education and experience. All nursing programs include hands-on clinical experience in students’ local communities. We also understand the needs of the busy, working adult student, which is why we developed our online school for nursing programs to provide the most flexibility possible. In fact, we were one of the pioneers in distance learning. Each student has a program consultant dedicated to their success throughout our program. We also have a faculty advisor ready to counsel students as necessary.

Community of Christ Seminary

The Community of Christ Seminary is solidly grounded in the Christian faith and shaped by its religious heritage and tradition. This tradition understands that God's will and purpose for the world and the church continue to emerge out of the process of faithful response to human need. We affirm that the people of God are called to live in community with all creation, and that peace and justice are the touchstones by which the gospel of Jesus Christ is en-fleshed.

The mission of the seminary is to educate and prepare — through prayerful scholarship, teaching, service and mentoring — faithful, creative and discerning leaders for ministries in congregations, church and the world. "[S]eek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning even by study and also by faith. (Doctrine and Covenants, 85:36)
