The love of Christ on display

For the Christian nurse, a career is an opportunity to show the love of Christ in action every day.

Maranatha’s Baptist nursing degree focuses on the spiritual and physical being. We help you develop a nursing worldview that will propel you into a lost world that needs care for every aspect of life.

Our courses will challenge you to think on your feet and take action based on knowledge obtained in a hands-on classroom environment.

"They desire us to love people like Christ loved people." – Alysha Morris, Graduate

Nursing on the mission field

Maranatha has offered students multiple opportunities to use their skills in service for Christ on foreign mission fields. We have listed a few of their stories below.

Our faculty knows nursing

"Nursing is never dry and boring. There is always something that takes place in the classroom that students are having that 'Aha moment.'

They are able to enjoy the subject matter, because there is something new and refreshing every day." Kelly Crum, Director, School of Nursing
