“We teach the meaning of care, explains Dr. Deb Carlson, president of Nebraska Methodist College, The Josie Harper Campus. “I’m proud of how our stu­dents interact with others as they learn to become educated citizens. They understand that it’s about providing the best possible experience for each patient.” 

Nursing degrees are the backbone of the curriculum, but the college offers a full range of health care education, from 6-week certificate programs to doctoral degrees (Doctor of Nursing Practice and Doctor of Education). In addition to attracting students who have the right mindset and heartset to provide compassionate care, Nebraska Methodist College is staffed by highly qualified professors. 

“We have faculty who could teach anywhere in the country,” Dr. Carlson notes. For example, “Marge Di Lorenzo wrote the textbook on phlebotomy. It’s been translated into seven different languages and is used all over the world.”

The college was founded in 1891 as a diploma program of Nebraska Methodist Hospital, and in 1985 it established degree-granting programs.
