We will challenge you to think critically regarding the world of ideas and affirm the truth of the Word of God as the foundation of all life and learning.

Our purpose? To mentor, inspire, and educate born healers into their calling.

What sets our Nursing program apart?

Clara Ward School of Nursing

We believe the Lord Jesus has ordained the timing to launch Bryan College’s new BSN program, and we are excited to see what He has planned to accomplish through you.

Because of a generous grant from the Clara Ward Foundation, we have the resources we need to remodel the upper floor of the Livesay Learning Center into a state-of-the-art health sciences simulation and skills lab, with space for two classrooms, two conference rooms, staff offices, and student lockers.

The first nursing classes will be offered in Fall, 2023.

Our faculty and staff have a heart for God and seek His mind and likeness above all things. They are each outstanding practitioners in their areas of specialty, with real-world experience caring for people in need. And they seek to mentor, inspire and educate each student into their calling as a BSN-prepared nurse.

Nursing Facilities are located on the second floor of the Livesay Learning Center. More information to come about a newly modified health sciences facility, classrooms, and equipment.

Our high-quality library facilities, health sciences information resources, services, and programs, center around facilitating informative connections and productive activity, provoking critical thought, and inspiring academic and spiritual excellence. We offer tutoring, student success coaching, calling and career services, testing service, and more through the ARC.

Bryan College boasts a wide selection of scholarships and grants, ranging from $500 to full tuition. We’ve laid out a step-by-step process to connect you with the financial aid that will make your Bryan College experience more affordable.
