Campbellsville University College of Nursing recognized by Abound and Colleges of Distinction


Campbellsville University’s School of Nursing has earned recognition from Abound and Colleges of Distinction, a comprehensive resource guide that helps adult students find degree completion programs.

Dr. Michele Dickens, interim dean of the school of nursing, said this honor is reflective of the School of Nursing’s mission and vision and excellent faculty engagement with students.

“The School of Nursing’s mission and vision is to motivate students to think critically through knowledge and experience,” she said.“Our nursing students and graduates uphold the dignity of all persons and respect diversity, lead and empower others through Christian servant leadership and promote health through innovative holistic care.”

Campbellsville’s School of Nursing has been honored as a prime institution for nursing students. Inclusion signifies the School of Nursing’s dedication to programming that is efficient, engaged and valuable, according to a news release from Abound and Colleges of Distinction.

“Campbellsville University’s nursing program is highly challenging to help prepare students for the demands of the health care field,” Abound said in a statement regarding the recognition. “A comprehensive clinical experience is included during programs leading to your degree.”

Dickens said faculty prepare students for the demands of the health care field by developing competent, caring and compassionate nurses.

Abound recognized programs meet several criteria in four main areas: Accessibility, Affordability, Acceleration and Advancement. Each school is evaluated through a key analysis of transfer-credit assessment data, career and support services, overall accessibility of campus resources, the breadth of engaged learning opportunities and more, the release said.

“Student success is a given in the School of Nursing,” Tyson Schritter, chief operating officer of Abound and Colleges of Distinction, said. “All of its programs are backed with broad perspectives across the liberal arts. Every student is pushed to be inquisitive and active. And with such extensive experiential learning opportunities, it’s no wonder why the School of Nursing graduates feel expertly prepared by their professional education.”

Campbellsville’s School of Nursing, as with all institutions recognized by Abound and Colleges of Distinction, was invited to join the cohort only after an exhaustive interview.

“Unlike annual statistical rankings of colleges and universities, we do not limit our vetting process to surface-level numbers and enrollment data. We hand-pick the schools that offer a truly valuable experience,” Schritter said.

He stresses the importance of academic advising, attentive faculty and flexible scheduling in a program that serves such a variable population.

“Our 20 years of work with Colleges of Distinction have given us the keen ability to identify the hallmarks of an effective education,” Schritter said. It’s inspiring to see how the Campbellsville School of Nursing goes the extra mile to provide the life-changing experience that every student deserves,”

Programs in Nursing include Associate in Nursing, Associate of Applied Science in Nursing, RN to BSN, Licensed Practical Nursing and Online MSN with FNP track.

The Abound college guidance system helps students find the best place to finish an undergraduate degree, further their careers with a graduate degree, explore nursing programs, or get into the right-fit MBA program.

The colleges they work with are nationally recognized for program excellence and offer courses on campus, online, or in a hybrid/blended format.
