The Gustavus nursing program is part of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Nursing Consortium (MINC), which is a collegial association between the nursing programs at St. Olaf College and Gustavus. The Consortium offers students the opportunity to earn a Gustavus degree, enroll in nursing courses with students from both campuses, enjoy courses taught by professors from two colleges, and have clinical learning experiences in a wide variety of rural and metropolitan healthcare and community facilities. The program, which is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), and approved by the Minnesota Board of Nursing (MBN), spans four academic years. During the first and second years, students complete prerequisites and general education courses. In the junior and senior years, they continue their liberal arts courses and complete the nursing courses necessary for certification.
