Our nursing program emphasizes critical thinking, clinical judgment and service to others. A nursing student can expect to be engaged in both theoretical and practical learning. You will spend time in the classroom studying the sciences, humanities and the fundamentals of nursing and health care delivery, and you will also apply this knowledge in the lab and during clinicals. Direct patient care experience is an essential component of a Stritch nursing degree that prepares students for career success.

A Nurse's Prayer
Give to my heart, O Lord… Compassion and understanding. Give to my hands, skill and tenderness. Give to my ears, the ability to listen. Give to my lips, words of comfort.
Give to me, O Lord… Strength for this selfless service. And enable me to give hope To those I am called to serve.
