Lauren always wanted to work in health care. She earned her first undergraduate degree in health science, which resulted in her developing a passion for holistic nursing and ultimately graduating from our second-degree nursing program.

Framed within the Jesuit philosophy of holistic care, our 16-month ABSN program is endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation, which makes our nursing graduates eligible to take the Holistic Certification Examination. Nurses with holistic nursing certification tend to stand out in health care, showing employers they have the intellect and empathy to properly care for patients.

“I chose Xavier because they go by the holistic model of patient care,” said Lauren. Another advantage of attending our university is that you’ll come to understand the importance self-care plays in your job performance and career satisfaction. After all, the only way you can deliver the best possible patient care is when you have the right work-life balance.

Watch as Lauren describes her accelerated path to nursing through Xavier, and how she received a job offer from one of our clinical partners before she even finished nursing school. Learn more at:
