A student working with a faculty member in the nursing lab

Our associate degree program offers a high level of support for learning, with small classes and a caring faculty dedicated to your success.

Tying healthcare to the liberal arts

Like other healthcare programs at St. Catherine, liberal arts courses in ethics and literature are integrated into your education. These courses will broaden your perspective and teach you to communicate well with patients and your healthcare team.

Clinical experiences

As a student at St. Kate’s, you will complete clinical rotations at leading healthcare organizations. Our extensive professional clinical preparation begins in your first semester and will help you enter the work force as a skilled, highly competent nurse.

Learning about a diverse population

A service learning course culminates with a hands-on experience mentoring others. You’ll learn about the values of an increasingly varied patient population in the United States and leave with the confidence to serve people from many cultures.
