The Anderson University School of Nursing was established in 1973 in response to the community's need for nurses to provide care in local institutions. Since that time the program has evolved to one offering baccalaureate and masters level nursing education and is dedicated to “Educating individuals committed to competence and compassion in the nursing profession, serving God and society.”
Our goal is to be a premier teaching university, with a Christian perspective integrated into its programs and the relationships between students, faculty and staff.
At Anderson University, the average student/faculty ratio is 15:1 and in the nursing major the ratio is 15:1. These class sizes allow students to have small clinical groups and individualized instruction while in the clinical settings—a necessary component for developing an excellent clinical practitioner.
