Nursing Department Mission
The mission of the SKC Nursing Department is to provide Native American nurses with the competencies required for professional practice and leadership in rural and tribal communities. The Nursing Program promotes collaborative partnerships and relationships with individuals and communities to enhance their health, well-being, and cultural identity.
We at Salish Kootenai College (SKC) are very excited to offer a four-year generic Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN). The BSN degree is now an industry standard, particularly among larger healthcare systems across the country including federal entities such as the Indian Health Service and Veterans Administration, SKC is committed to providing the gold standard of pre-licensure degree offerings.
