What's the Clarke Nursing Difference? Click here to find out.

The undergraduate nursing major integrates knowledge from the humanities and from the natural, social, and nursing sciences to prepare nurse generalists with critical judgment skills and leadership potential. The nursing curriculum emphasizes caring as the integrating concept in promoting, maintaining and restoring health of communities, of families and of individuals across the life span.

The baccalaureate degree in nursing prepares men and women for academic eligibility for licensure as registered nurses and, after licensure, for functioning as professional nurses in a variety of settings, including community agencies, clinics, extended care facilities, schools, industry, and hospitals. Graduates also have the academic foundation necessary to pursue graduate study and clinical specialization.

Clarke offers a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in two concentrations: as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and in Nursing Education and Organizational Leadership (NEOL).  Graduates are eligible to sit for the FNP Certification examination upon completion of the program. NEOL graduates may prepare for careers in teaching, leadership, policy, or wherever their dreams may take them.  Clarke University’s graduate programs specialize in preparing students for primary care, especially with rural and underserved populations.

The nursing program is approved by the Iowa Board of Nursing. The baccalaurate in nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice at Clarke University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, One DuPont Circle, NW, Suite 530, Washington, DC, 20036-1120, (202)887-6791.
