Nursing

MISSION STATEMENT

“Preparing compassionate, patient-centered graduates for Christian servant leadership in the
profession of nursing.”

The Fetterman School of Nursing, launching in Fall 2017, is committed to prepare and equip nurses who will shape the profession of nursing and have a profound impact in transforming healthcare and saving lives. The School of Nursing embraces the truth of Scripture as the foundation that prepares students for the passions to which God has called them. Nursing is a ministry of compassionate care. Your time at TFC will be filled with holy moments as you grow in your knowledge of nursing as a ministry.

TFC will offer a BSN program – 4-year degree – eligible to take NCLEX-RN.

What does this mean? This is a four-year program of study that leads to the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Nursing. Upon completion of the program, a graduate is eligible to write the NCLEX-RN Examination for licensure as a Registered Nurse and is prepared to function as a generalist in professional nursing practice.
