School of Nursing


Dr. Kimberly Quiett, Dean

 

The LeTourneau University School of Nursing is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing to offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The BSN requires a total of 121 credit hours. These hours are divided into general education, theology and vocation core; nursing prerequisite courses; and clinical nursing courses. Based on the established degree plan, students will complete all pre-nursing requirements during the first 2 years of study and the clinical nursing courses in the junior and senior years.

During freshman and sophomore years of study, students of the LETU nursing program are considered pre-nursing students.  After completing the nursing prerequisite, theology and vocation core, and general education courses,  students must apply to the School of Nursing.  Transfer students are also eligible for admission in the School of Nursing provided all admissions criteria are satisfied.

 

Criteria for Admission to the School of Nursing:

  • Complete the School of Nursing application, essay, and references.
  • Complete HESI A2 entrance exam, with a minimum score of 80 on math and reading composite portions.  
  • Submit official transcripts from other institutions (must be submitted during application to LETU).
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75.  Students must have achieved a “C” or higher in all prerequisite courses.
  • Have completed all prerequisite courses and be within 12 hours of completing all general education and the theology and vocation core courses.

 

The BSN is a four-year residential program.  During the clinical part of the program, students work side-by-side with professional nurses to facilitate their learning and maximize their clinical experience.  Additional information may be found on the Nursing web pages.

 

After graduation, students will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN ® exam) and begin their nursing career in one of many settings with high demand for qualified nurses: acute care hospitals, primary care clinics, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, international missions, corporate offices, health promotion facilities/organizations, community agencies, faith-based organizations, schools, and more.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 19% over the next decade.  LETU nursing students graduate prepared to meet this need and make a crucial, eternal impact in countless lives over the course of their careers.
