William Preston Turner School of Nursing

Studying for Nursing DegreeFor you, nursing is a calling.

Something from within drives you to offer compassion and comfort to the ailing, but you’re compelled to go beyond simply treating the sick. You want to teach others how to prevent illnesses and lead healthier lives.

A career in nursing is your destination. We invite you to begin your journey at Lander, a trusted leader in nursing education for more than 50 years.

As a nursing major at Lander, you’ll learn the science and the art of nursing. You’ll learn under an expert faculty who are more than just educators – they are practicing professional nurses. Many of our professors maintain specialty certification and clinical practices so that they can keep up-to-date on new scientific developments in nursing and serve as role models for their students.

And, with a relatively small department, you’ll feel a comfortable openness in our student-oriented atmosphere, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to interact with faculty and fellow students professionally and socially.

From perfecting your skills on state-of-the-art medical mannequins to putting your talents to work in regional hospitals, medical offices, health centers and other facilities, your experiences will prepare you – intellectually and clinically – for a successful nursing career.

You want to help others as a nurse. We’ll help you achieve that goal with a degree from Lander.
