100 Elliff Hall
Welcome to the website of the School of Nursing (formerly the Department of Nursing Science established in 1969) at Lincoln University in Missouri. Currently we offer an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in nursing program on the military base at Fort Leonard Wood. The AAS nursing program has a part-time evening curriculum designed to meet the local needs of the community and the educational needs of active duty military personnel and their dependents. The AAS nursing program accepts 20 military or military affiliated and 20 civilian students each fall semester. Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) may be eligible for advanced standing. Upon successful completion of the AAS nursing program, students are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses. Satisfactory performance on this examination will qualify the student for licensure as a registered nurse. The AAS nursing program is approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
Lincoln University has initial approval from the Missouri State Board of Nursing to admit 30 students per semester to the four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program offered on the main campus. The BSN program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
The School of Nursing also offers a RN-BSN nursing program online. The RN-BSN program was established to meet the needs of practicing registered nurses. The RN-BSN program is also accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
Our nursing faculty members are leaders in the professional nursing community and serve as role models for our nursing students. Our nursing students are prepared to practice within complex healthcare systems and assume the roles of provider of care, designer/coordinator/manager of care, and member of a profession in a rapidly changing and culturally diverse health care environment.
We appreciate your interest in the profession of nursing and in our nursing programs and invite your comments, questions and suggestions.
