Highlights of Our Nursing Program
EMU nursing faculty say nursing is more than knowing about the body. It’s about understanding and caring for the total person.
Our nursing program emphasizes caring relationships motivated by Christian service goals. Nursing preparation at EMU helps students to look at health care needs as part of a whole – physical, spiritual, mental and environmental. Students learn to work in any setting where nurses are needed. We train nurses to have adaptability and confidence in an ever-changing field.
