More than ever before, nurses are being called on to complete bachelor's degrees. Healthcare systems, leaders in the nursing profession, and the Institute of Medicine have called on more nurses — up to 80% — to complete their bachelor's.   

Nurses are playing an ever more important role as our healthcare systems seek to improve care in a time of historic transformation.  Simply put, successful nurses need to become leaders in advancing their practice and improving patient care.

That's where St. Kate's nurses come in. When you earn your bachelor of science degree through St. Catherine University's RN-BS Degree Completion program, you'll:

  • Be prepared to lead and influence — you'll graduate with the ability to lead initiatives to improve healthcare delivery
  • Develop skills to work across cultures and in teams to improve patient outcomes
  • Build meaningful relationships — you'll be supported and mentored as part of a diverse student cohort
  • Increase your ability to implement evidence-based practice
  • Ground your work in ethics and mindful practice, through a rich learning experience informed by social justice and liberal arts learning
  • Prepare to advance in your current practice or into a new position, pursue graduate study and advanced practice, and secure your future

At St. Catherine University, the only college or university in the region to offer all levels of nursing education, some RN-BS Degree Completion progress into master's programs (nurse practitioner, nurse educator) and the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree.
