Developing nurses who bring a Christ-like presence to healthcare and are prepared to serve a diverse and changing society.

Bethel offers an outstanding nursing education. We're distinct in the way we integrate the Christian faith into nursing practice. And our highly qualified faculty—most with doctoral degrees—build close, mentoring relationships with students.

This approach helps nursing candidates succeed. Our graduates have a high pass rate for the RN licensure exam on their first attempt. Our pass rates consistently place Bethel among the top programs in Minnesota. Our state-of-the-art labs, cross-cultural service opportunities, and access to a master's degree in nursing here also make Bethel an exceptional place to prepare for a nursing career.

Nursing is becoming more complex. It's a profession with multiple roles and requires an expanding range of unique knowledge and skills. More and more, nurses are leaders, improving the quality of healthcare in changing systems in the U.S. and around the world.

As a Christian liberal arts school, Bethel gives you a well-rounded education for this challenging field. Our Christian worldview emphasizes caring, service, integrity, excellence, and the inherent worth of all life. Education here involves relationships and critical thinking. It’s active and sets the stage for lifelong learning.
