Your Purpose. Our Mission.

Nursing is a calling. I was blessed to be called to train up the next generation of nurses. I cannot imagine a better place to do that than here at CSU. I am able to relate everything I teach back to the calling God has placed on my students'' hearts. I have the chance to mentor nursing students in a Christian environment, using my faith as my guide. I cannot imagine a better way to teach nursing.
