Nursing Division

The Nursing Division prepares you to be a medical professional who is both knowledgeable and compassionate. Here, you are clinically prepared to be the hands and feet of Christ in numerous health care environments—delivery rooms, nursing homes, acute care, medical missions and beyond. You are challenged in the classroom and in clinicals and labs, to cultivate a posture of servant leadership and hospitality—two vital aspects every skilled nurse needs.

Cornerstone University is in the process of being accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Full CCNE accreditation is anticipated in 2023, with an on-site visit occurring in March of 2023.

Programs Offered

Nursing Center

When students learn in the nursing center, they get firsthand experience in what it’s like to work in a hospital—by interacting with artificial intelligence mannequins that move and respond to treatment and by working with state-of-the-art medical technology that is not typically available to undergraduate students. And the experience doesn’t stop there. The level of both hands-on experience and academic excellence you will experience is unparalleled. Students learn from faculty who have experience in emergency, labor and delivery, cardiac step-down and more.

Cornerstone University is in the process of being accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Full CCNE accreditation is anticipated in 2023. CCNE accreditation will be retroactive to the site visit date in March 2023, with the first cohort graduating in May 2024.

Cornerstone University pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is currently preparing for the initial accreditation process with the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The on-site visit is scheduled for March 15 to 17, 2023.

As required by the CCNE procedures, at least two months before the scheduled on-site evaluation, Cornerstone University must notify constituents and other interested parties of this accreditation process and offer opportunity to submit, in writing, comments concerning the program’s qualifications for accreditation. 

Written constituent or third-party comments must be received by CCNE 21 days before the scheduled on-site evaluation, which is February 23, 2023.  You may submit written comments to:
Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
Attn: Third-Party Comments
655 K St., NW, Suite 750 Washington, DC 20001

– or –

Please note that CCNE shares third-party comments with the evaluation team prior to the on-site evaluation, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program, the university administration, or the Board of Trustees. During its review of the program, the evaluation team considers third-party comments, if any, that relate to the accreditation standards.

If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to contact me at or 616-977-5551.

Nursing is part of my purpose for being here. It’s important as a follower of Christ, and it’s important to me to follow that calling.
