[August 04, 2009]  Lincoln Christian College is introducing a new associate degree program in pre-nursing for students who want to continue to study for a bachelor's degree in nursing at a college of nursing. Through a partnership with OSF Saint Francis Medical Center College of Nursing, top-performing Lincoln Christian graduates may be guaranteed admission into the Saint Francis BSN degree program.

Students accepted into the program will receive advisement from both colleges. Up to five LCC students who complete the associate of science in pre-nursing with a grade-point average of at least 2.67 out of 4.0 and meet all admission requirements will be admitted to Saint Francis automatically.

"A priority of our faculty and staff is educating our students as part of a lifelong learning process," LCC President Keith Ray said. "All students take a common core of classes that build a solid foundation in biblical studies, in the liberal arts and in professional practice, for service inside and outside the church. We are delighted that OSF Saint Francis Medical Center has partnered with us to help equip students in the compassionate field of nursing."

LCC's pre-nursing program not only meets the pre-nursing program course requirements from most colleges of nursing, but also provides courses in Bible and Christian worldview that teach respect for others and compassion to help those who are hurting. Students will learn the scientific and health information required in standard pre-nursing programs, and graduates will be able to successfully pursue a BSN degree at Saint Francis and other colleges of nursing.
