Message From The Director

In the healthcare industry, earning a degree is more than just a credential. It’s a mark of excellence reflecting your expertise and leadership. It can also increase your opportunity for promotion and financial growth.

As the first director of nursing at Regent University and a seasoned builder of award-winning, highly credentialed nursing programs, I have walked the floors you have walked. I would be delighted for you to consider studying through our College of Healthcare Sciences and School of Nursing.

Regent knows what’s important to you:

  • Our programs are online, with some additional clinical requirements.
  • Courses are in convenient 8-week formats.
  • Our holistic approach addresses care for the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.
  • Our degrees are an affordable investment in your future.

My philosophy matches Regent’s 40-year history: Developing skilled leaders is a mission. And a faith-based approach sets our graduates apart as highly trained, passionate professionals delivering the highest quality of skilled care.

“Regent professors provided excellent support to me as an online nursing student. Their focus on excellence and Christian leadership expanded how I see the potential impact of my professional work.”– Stephanie Spencer, 2018 Graduate
