School of Nursing

The School of Nursing at Aquinas College maintains its long-standing tradition of preparing competent and confident nurses in the Catholic-Dominican tradition to care for the sick wherever they are found—in hospitals, hospice and skilled care centers, schools and community health centers, homes, and even on the streets of our cities.

In addition to graduate studies, the School of Nursing offers two undergraduate degree programs:

These programs promote the seamless academic progression in nursing, from the entry-level A.S.N. degree, to the R.N.-B.S.N. program for registered nurses, to the Master of Science in Nursing Education and a Post-Master’s Certificate Program in Nursing Education. All programs support and implement the mission and core values of Aquinas College which are founded on Christian principles of truth and charity in the Catholic-Dominican moral tradition.

To learn more about the nursing program, please consider visiting our campus for one of our frequent Nursing Information Sessions.

Human Dignity and Ethics in Health Care

As a Catholic and Dominican college, the Aquinas College School of Nursing takes a leadership position in promoting human dignity and ethics in health care. In early 2013, the School of Nursing founded the Center for the Study of Human Dignity and Ethics in Health Care, to affirm, protect and defend the dignity of the human person through education, consultation, research and service.

Hear Brother Ignatius Perkins, O.P., Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., A.N.E.F., Dean of the School of Nursing and founder of the Center, talk about this new initiative at Aquinas College.

"I wanted to attend a small Catholic College where I could pursue nursing as my major. I wanted to be at a college with friendly people and where everyone knows everybody and the students are not just seen as a number but are seen as individual and unique people."

- Mary W.

The two-year ASN program—the reason I chose Aquinas—is phenomenal.

- Therese S.
