Kansas City, MO 64111
Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences is a private institution in Kansas City, Missouri. The college is a nursing school that is affiliated with the Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City. The degree program was established by the hospital in 1903 and was originally managed by a department within the hospital. The college received accreditation in 1994 and is currently accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. The campus is about four blocks north of the hospital. The main academic building was recently renovated and now features a state of the art simulation center, with two simulated hospital rooms and a birthing room. There is also a 10 bed skills lab.
The school offers two BSN programs. Incoming students may apply to the traditional BSN program. For those with a bachelor’s degree in an unrelated field, the school offers an accelerated BSN program. Both programs are accredited by the CCNE. The MSN program was started in 2012 and includes two specialization tracks – Nurse Educator and Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. In 2015, the school began offering an RN to BSN program for registered nurses wishing to obtain a BSN. Students receive most of their clinical training at Saint Luke’s Hospital. However, the school also has partnerships with several other local clinics and healthcare facilities.
