For a faith-based, holistic education with strong clinical emphasis, this program CANNOT be beat. The academic requirements are high, the demands are great but the end rewards have been worth it. Now, as teaching faculty here, I do view the history of the program from a rather biased viewpoint. But I have had the opportunity to work around the world, in varied cultures with nurses from other programs and I can say that Liberty's Nursing program and it's graduates can hold their own (if not excel) with the best of them.
Students looking to enter the profession of nursing and plan to pursue a 4-year degree, I would recommend they study hard in the areas of the hard sciences (i.e. biology, chemistry, math.) These subjects sharpen the thinking process. They should cultivate critical thinking skills - asking questions within the realm of their studies.
Liberty University nursing, as with other nursing programs in the country, has admission criteria that must be met and a list of individuals waiting for a vacated spot to fill. But if the student (both men and women) want strong training in a Christian environment and are called to this profession - they ought to take a look.
Please keep in mind that these people are in the workforce leading busy lives...
