Our nursing department boasts a very high pass rate for students taking their NCLEX-RNs — an average of 96% over the last seven years.

When you graduate with a nursing degree from Hope College, you will begin your first job with three years of hands-on, real-world experience in nursing and research involvement that is unique at the undergraduate level.

what recent grads are saying

“I interviewed at two hospitals in Denver, Colorado, last month and both were very impressed by the fact that Hope has a research component in their undergraduate nursing program. We talked about the research practicum in general as well as my individual experience in the practicum for a long time in both interviews and I know that it made an impact on the job offers I received. I am so grateful for the experiences and opportunities that were available to me at Hope.”

What employers are saying

“The new graduates that I have supervised from your school of nursing have all been well prepared and are among the best performers.”

“The Hope graduate at our agency is an outstanding nurse — that translates to her being educated at a good-great facility.”

“The RN that was trained at this School of Nursing came to us with skills that far exceeded other area schools. She works in critical care and has already obtained her CCRN. She is very motivated and is a clinical leader within the unit.”
