Missionary Nursing

Program Objectives

In keeping with the Institutional Goals, the Missionary Nursing Program is designed specifically:

1. To help the student come to a commitment of fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior.

2. To enable the student to construct a Biblical understanding of Christian ministry to people.

3. To provide a foundational education upon which the student will build as he/she pursues nursing studies.

4. To develop skills and abilities necessary to begin cross cultural living and ministry in missions-related health care.

Course Requirements are as follows (Total 64 hours)

General Education, 19 hours, consisting of:
History of Civilization, 6 hours; English, 6 hours; Speech Communication, 3 hours; General Psychology, 3 hours; College Study Skills, 1 hour.

Professional Education
, 12 hours, consisting of :
Personal Evangelism, 3 hours; Missionary Internship, 6 hours; Missions electives, 9 hours (Contemporary Missions highly recommended).

Missionary Internships are usually done in the summers between the sophomore and junior and senior years.

The two years at Penn View will be followed by a two-year Registered Nursing program (Regarded as 65 hours for Penn View program) at a nearby School of Nursing. Students are to maintain their missionary emphasis wherever possible in the projects assigned in connection with the Nursing program.
Students must apply directly to the Nursing School at least one year in advance of the semester they plan to attend nursing classes there. Students who have not had high school chemistry will need to make up the deficiency. The Academic Dean will have application forms, but admission to the School of Nursing is the students’ responsibility. The School of Nursing controls acceptance into their program.
Graduates will receive diplomas from both Penn View Bible Institute and the School of Nursing and will be eligible to take the National Council for Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for licensure as a registered professional nurse.
