Nursing Major


With the oldest Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing program in Indiana, Goshen College has an excellent reputation for producing top-notch nurses. We’ve been teaching nursing long enough to know that health care is more than memorizing anatomy — it’s about caring for the whole individual. Since 1950, we have been sending out nursing professionals who demonstrate cross-cultural awareness and holistic care. Employers say they prefer Goshen College graduates because they provide compassionate, culturally sensitive and quality care for patients.

When you enroll in the nursing major at Goshen College, you’ll be joining one of our most popular and esteemed programs on campus. Ranked among the best nurse practitioner programs in Indiana, Goshen is known for its educational excellence and focus on cultural diversity. As a nursing student, you’ll have a variety of opportunities for clinical experiences close to campus. Located across the street from one of the best hospitals in northern Indiana (Goshen Health) and only miles away from a number of other excellent clinical facilities, you’ll have easy access to quality placements. After graduating from the nursing program, you’ll enter the workforce with the ability to care for a patient’s full range of needs.


The baccalaureate and master’s family nurse practitioner programs at Goshen College are fully accredited. Check out the latest stats below.
