Located in central Kansas, the KU School of Nursing in Salina offers a traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program. The goal of the Salina campus is to provide quality clinical training in a rural setting to give students an opportunity to experience the values of living and working in a smaller community.

Students complete two years of prerequisite courses at an accredited college or university before being admitted to the nursing program on the Salina campus. Salina students simultaneously join classes with peers on the larger Kansas City campus using interactive, distance technology. Courses are taught by nursing faculty on both campuses.

Onsite clinical experiences are offered at Salina Regional Health Center, a regional hub for hospital care, and other community health care organizations in Salina and surrounding areas.

Our program highlights:
  • Small class size (1:24 instructor-to-student ratio)
  • Access to state-of-the-art technology in the Health Education Center (2018) and building expansion project (2021)
  • Rural health emphasis
  • Master’s and doctoral-prepared faculty
  • Opportunity to participate in interprofessional education and service activities with the KU School of Medicine-Salina students
  • Resource support by a larger university known for academic excellence while remaining in a smaller, more rural setting
