    Campus Safety

    Even though it is in Westport which isn't the safest area of KC,MO, I do feel safe at school since the doors are locked and you need a badge to get in. Also, the parking lot is gated.

    Clubs and Activities

    SLSNA

    Bang for the buck

    While it is quite expensive to go here, it is an education that is well worth it. This school has a great reputation and the professors have years and years of combined experience. Some of the teachers have been with the college over 20 years which is great, and some of the teachers are newer and bring a fresh perspective to nursing which is nice, too!

    What to do for fun

    Join SLSNA and particpate in community events!

    Food and Dining

    It is in the heart of Westport, so there are lots of restaurants/fast food chains close. There's also vending machines, microwaves, stove/oven, and coffee maker available.

    Academic Rigor

    There is a lot of studying, but that is to be expected of a nursing program! The faculty work very hard to make sure the curriculum is up to date and follows what is expected for the NCLEX.

    Tips for prospective students

    Pay attention in your Physiology and Human Anatomy classes! This will help you so much with Pathophysiology! Also, get an NCLEX book and start practicing! There is no such thing as practicing too early for the NCLEX!

    St Luke's College of Health Sciences is accredited and competitive BSN program. The Faculty here is amazing, want you to succeed, and do not try to weed out students. I am proud to say I will be a graduate from SLCHS.

    What to do for fun

    Plaza and Westport are full of shops and bars. It is also close to downtown Kansas City which has plenty of shops, movie theaters, and Power and Light which is a fun late night setting. One of my favorite things to do downtown is go to the river market which is a mix of farmers market, antique malls and Asian markets. The zoo and IMAX theater are also close. The best part about Kansas City is that there are so many parks that you can forget that you are in the city. Anytime I am getting overwhelmed I go to the lake and unwind. It makes hard classes seem that much easier.

    Food and Dining

    Westport is one of my favorite places in Kansas City. You are in close proximity to the Plaza as well which means that you are close to ethnic cheap food (Westport) and nicer out on the town food (Plaza).

    Academic Rigor

    Saint Luke's just changed thier program which has made classes flow together better, decreasing the stress and workload. Classes and knowledge just seem to fall into place.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you get the suggested books. They are so helpful! Also if you are thinking about going into nursing and have the patience for it, go for a bachelors nursing program. It will pay off in the long run!

    In three sentences

    Saint Luke's is a small school which is a plus because you get to know your instructors. They also have a state of the art simulation lab that helps students learn and practice techniques in a safe fun way. Both of these things greatly increase the amount you can learn and decreases anxiety that goes along with nursing school.

    Great for these types of students

    students accustomed to small school/classrooms. students who might need more one on one with their teachers to learn certain things. students who like it when teachers know your name because they care.

    Tips for prospective students

    go if you like small focused atmosphere. prepare to study it is a bsn program after all.

    Bang for the buck

    its a bsn program at a private school. it is costly but still not as bad as some of the surrounding schools and you get a more focused one on one education. the staff actually cares and it isn't about a pay check.

    Academic Rigor

    this school has a small class size and great group of teachers/administration. they are overly willing to teach, stay after, and be one on one with you to give you any help they can. they want you to succeed! the school is affiliated with st. luke's hospital so they have their own access to teaching hospitals and the hospitals welcome you just as much as the college did. there is an over whelming feeling of unity and prosperity in st. luke’s that you feel immediately. it is a great school and great environment for learning.
