The Hastings College 3+1 nursing program is conducted in partnership with the Creighton University College of Nursing and Mary Lanning Healthcare in Hastings. It allows you to spend three years on the Hastings College campus followed by one year in the Creighton Accelerated of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program on the Mary Lanning Healthcare campus.
The result? You'll graduate in four years with two degrees: a bachelor’s degree from Hastings College in Biology-Health Systems, and a BSN from Creighton. During the program, you'll also become familiar with nursing practice through Creighton’s ongoing partnership with Mary Lanning Healthcare campus and its Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) partners in nearby communities.
This is a great way to get into nursing while exploring and enjoying your other interests, as band, theatre, chorus, athletics, art, student organizations and more are all available to you as a student at Hastings College. You can even add supporting majors or minors at Hastings to broaden your education and match your interests. It's a full college experience that isn't always possible in traditional nursing programs.
The 3+1 program also offers:
- Guaranteed job placement upon graduation with selected clinical partners, and
- $2,000 loan repayment every year for five years (a $10,000 value) by select employers.
For those interested in completing an accelerated nursing program at other institutions across the country, the Hastings College program can transfer. Just check with your admissions counselor.
