Overview

Once approved, the planned brand-new Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences at Rockhurst University will offer one of the premier 4-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree programs in Kansas City, educating future health care leaders who will have a profound impact on our city and the Midwest.

To ensure Rockhurst is providing our nursing and health care students with an unmatched educational experience, the University is renovating Sedgwick Hall to create new lab spaces and classrooms to dramatically enhance the learning environment. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2022. Nursing and health science classes will continue to be held at the Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences site on Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza until Rockhurst’s reimagined Sedgwick Hall is open.

Although the two institutions must wait for the agreement to be approved to officially become one institution, we didn’t want to wait that long to launch the partnership and grow with one another!

Rockhurst is proud to offer 70 guaranteed direct entry seats to the Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences nursing program for the fall 2020 Rockhurst freshman class through our Pre-Nursing Scholars program (pending admission requirements have been met; details on the program below). Until the agreement has been approved, this serves as a 2+2 program, where pre-requisite courses anchored in leadership, service and Jesuit values are completed at Rockhurst University for two years, followed by nursing courses at Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences. #

Learning Outcomes 

  • This partnership offers multiple associates, bachelor’s and graduate degree programs and certificates – offered both on campus and online – at the Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences. Once the agreement is approved, Rockhurst will become the first Jesuit institution to offer associate degrees, creating several pathways for students from varying backgrounds to engage in a transformational educational experience suited to their needs, learning styles and career goals.
  • Rockhurst University and Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences are dedicated to providing unique, hands-on, tailored academic experiences with low faculty-to-student ratios, impactful networking opportunities outside the classroom, as well as academic advising and peer tutoring to help our students to be successful. The College’s affiliation with Saint Luke’s Health System – the largest health care employer in KC – helps 100% of its students find jobs after graduation.*
