School of Nursing

Please note: Beginning in the fall of 2017, Aquinas will no longer offer degrees in arts and sciences, business and nursing, nor provide residential housing and student life activities. Aquinas will focus its academic programming on the School of Education and on course offerings in philosophy and theology.

The School of Nursing at Aquinas College has a 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.

The School of Nursing currently offers two undergraduate degree programs:

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.

In high school, I knew I was going to study nursing in college. And so whenever I was wondering where I should go to school, they said go to Aquinas College because Aquinas nurses are selected before anyone else, from the hospitals, they seek us out. So that was definitely a cool thing about Aquinas and why I wanted to study nursing.

I think the nursing program at Aquinas really prepares you. It's very rigorous, but I think that the level of respect that the hospitals and community have for it speak to that,  so it's worth it all in the end.

"Going into the medical field, I especially wanted a school that valued the dignity of human life."

- Maria

"I was attracted to Aquinas because it taught the Catholic Faith and had a good nursing program."

- Mary F.

Since I wanted to go into the medical field, I really wanted to also have an ethical and philosophical dimension to it where we're focused on the dignity of the human person, and seeing each patient as an individual made in the image and likeness of God.
