MidAmerica Nazarene University

Olathe, KS 66062

MidAmerica Nazarene University (MNU) is a private university in Olathe, Kansas, with undergrad and graduate degree programs. MNU was founded in 1966 by the Church of the Nazarene as a Christian liberal arts college. The campus is located on 105 acres of land in Olathe, which is part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. MNU now offers over 50 undergraduate majors and 7 graduate degrees. Undergraduate students that do not live with family in the area must live in the campus housing. The school also requires students to attend chapel services and adhere to their moral policy. 

MNU provides students with a few undergraduate nursing programs and an MSN program. The undergrad programs include accelerated BSN, traditional BSN, LPN to BSN, and RN to BSN programs, which are all accredited by the CCNE. When enrolled in the traditional BSN program, students take liberal arts and the prerequisite classes during their first two years. The school recently opened a Virtual Patient Center, to give nursing students hands-on experience in a state-of-the-art learning laboratory. The nursing programs are student-centered, which encourages students to solve problems and seek answers. The school also provides students with clinical experience at a variety of local healthcare facilities.
