Resources for Learning
Two institutions in historic Bethlehem, Pennsylvania—St. Luke’s Hospital and Moravian College—provide nursing students with remarkable resources and a wide range of choices for learning.
A nursing curriculum for the 21st century...
It is a unique opportunity for students interested in nursing careers that promote health and healing for our times: Earning valued degrees at the bachelor's and master's levels from Moravian College. Built on a liberal arts curriculum respected for more than 250 years and a nursing major backed by one of the best teaching hospitals in the nation. Moravian and St. Luke’s have created a curriculum based on a holistic approach to health.
All the rights and privileges of a Moravian student...
Two beautiful campuses and exceptional facilities in many academic and co-curricular areas are available to a nursing major at Moravian College. An interactive computing system supports all Moravian students.
Reeves Library—one of the best small academic libraries in the region—is augmented by an automated interlibrary loan system with access to more than two million volumes. The athletics center offers excellent facilities—including tennis courts and a weight room—for physical and recreational activities.
Advice is readily available ...
A nursing student has an array of academic decisions to make as he or she puts together an individualized nursing curriculum. Each student works with an advisor to build an academic program based on his or her professional goals.
A center designed for the education of nurses...
Completed in 1995, the Priscilla Payne Hurd Education Center at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem includes lecture halls, classrooms, a nurses’ learning laboratory, simulation technology, and lounges. The classrooms and lecture halls have state-of-the-art electronics enabling faculty to provide multimedia presentations including computer imaging.
The science of nursing is supported through outstanding resources...
St. Luke’s Hospital and Health Network has been a leader in bringing leading-edge technology to the Lehigh Valley and providing advanced services to the people of the community. For nursing students, this means having access to the best data, working with the best equipment and the most experienced clinicians, and being part of forward-thinking health care. The concept of research is introduced early and threaded throughout the nursing curriculum. Students conduct their own research and learn to appreciate the value of research in solving real-world clinical practice problems.
What is life like outside of the classroom or clinical agency?
Undergraduate nursing majors live with other Moravian College students in one of the several types of residences at Moravian College. Nursing majors are fully integrated into the Moravian College community and participate in a wide variety of cocurricular and extra curricular activities that include athletics, arts and student-run organizations.
Caring for the patient in a respectful, compassionate way is at the heart of the nursing education program at St. Luke’s School of Nursing at Moravian College. Quality and cost-effective health care remains at the core of the Health Network's mission.
