Earning GCU’s RN to BSN can help you achieve your career goals and learn how to combine your principles with your profession. The following are a few factors that may help you incorporate your Christian values and a career in nursing:

Attend a Christian University

Developing an educational foundation that is rooted in Christian values can prepare you to incorporate your spiritual principles into your career. If you want to help ensure that your faith is part of your education, then consider getting your nursing degree from a Christian university. At GCU, we foster classroom environments designed to advance the ethical decision-making of our students by focusing on nursing theories and science along with a foundation in Christian values.

Choose the Right Degree Program

GCU’s RN to BSN program includes a variety of courses that expand on healthcare topics and clinical principles that help deepen their knowledge of their profession. While earning this degree, students also complete the Ethical and Spiritual Decision Making in Health Care course, which presents a Christian foundation for spiritual assessment, with an emphasis on ethical decision-making and biomedical ethical principles within nursing practice.

Practice Your Faith Consistently

Whether you are working, in school or both, balancing the demands of your day-to-day life can sometimes be a challenge. To make it easier to incorporate your Christian values and a career in nursing, stay in the Word of God and take time to build your personal relationship with Him. Taking this step can help you bring your faith into your daily work and make your career feel more spiritually rewarding.
