Today St Francis Medical Center College of Nursing offers fully accredited degrees at all levels – bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN); Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN); and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). This is a private Catholic school and its mission and values reflect those of St. Francis of Assisi – caring for the sick, the injured, and the poor. The College also emphasizes the promotion and maintenance of good health. The relationship between the College and the Medical Center provides direct clinical experience for students.
