A new vision for nursing education: Bold nurses who are passionate about improving health care for all people.
Private college myth: Our total tuition and fees are almost $9,000 lower than that of Mizzou's nursing program, and our graduates will earn higher salaries faster by graduating in three years instead of four.
Direct Entry: Start nursing classes your freshman year and earn your B.S.N. in three years (including two summers). There's no secondary application in sophomore or junior year.
Experience: Hands-on clinical work in the Simulation Center and with real patients at Magnet Hospital Boone Health (Stephens' neighbor, just a block east of campus). You'll complete six semesters of clinical practice. Our curriculum includes the full spectrum of health across age groups and levels of need, including experiences in a premiere hospital and other regional health care settings.
Let's get started. We are currently enrolling students for Spring 2022
The Simulation Center at Boone Health
The Simulation Center is a state-of-the-art simulated nursing unit for Stephens College students. Students learn and practice in a former patient care unit converted into The Learning Center at Boone Health.
Patient Care Technician Trainee Program
Boone Health’s Patient Care Technician (PCT) Trainee Program is perfect for pre-nursing students. A PCT performs various direct patient care functions and works closely with a nurse to ensure patients receive the highest level of personal care. In this program, you’ll receive both classroom and hands-on instruction in direct patient care to prepare you to be a PCT.
