William Jewell College
William Jewell College is a small, private liberal arts school in Liberty, Missouri. Founded in 1849, William Jewell has a long tradition of instilling students with compassion and leadership. The nursing division offers five different CCNE accredited tracks toward obtaining a BSN degree. There’s a 3 year plan, a 4 year plan, a transfer program, and a 12 or 16 month accelerated track.
William Jewell’s nursing program places great importance on understanding the whole self, meaning the mind, body, and spirit, of both the student and the patient alike. Students will clock in 650 hours of in-lab and clinical time to fully develop the skillset necessary to provide quality, patient-centered care. Beyond excellence in nursing skills, students will cultivate their leadership and critical thinking skills, as well as accountability.
The program is well-connected in the surrounding area, and nearby hospitals recruit students from William Jewell. Beyond hospitals, the program has further relations with community health agencies, public schools, senior care facilities, mental health clinics, and home health facilities.
