The Nursing Major

The nursing major at Luther College offers an integrated program of liberal arts and 14 professional nursing courses. The program gives you a broad approach to nursing, providing a base for graduate study or immediate entry into the nursing profession.

Why Luther's Nursing Major?

The entire third year of our program is taught in Rochester, Minnesota, home of the world-renowned Mayo Medical Center and its affiliating hospitals, Rochester Methodist and Saint Marys. You will receive nursing experience in these settings as well as in many others in the community. You have the opportunity to experience nursing as it is delivered in rural settings during their sophomore and senior years.

Our graduates are prepared to work in both rural and urban environments, large medical centers and small community hospitals, nursing homes and in the community based on the philosophy that the nurse’s role in the prevention of illness and promotion of health is equally as important as caring for persons who are already acutely or chronically ill.
