Curriculum

Successful achievement in the humanities is basic to understanding the whole person and his/her response in health and illness. The well-prepared high school student usually spends four academic years completing the requirements for the Nursing major. The freshman and sophomore years are spent on the Lamoni campus, where the student enrolls in supporting science and humanities courses.* The nursing courses are taught on the Independence Campus in Independence, Missouri. The first three nursing courses are taught the summer before the junior year. Students will go to a variety of health care agencies for hands-on clinical experience while simultaneously completing the general education and Nursing major requirements.
