Yancey School of Nursing

Dean’s Message

The Yancey School of Nursing is located on the beautiful campus of Kentucky Christian University in Grayson, Kentucky. This facility was completed in summer of 2008 and was made possible by a gift from the family of Robert and Nina Yancey. The School of Nursing adopted the name Yancey School of Nursing in appreciation to the family for their gracious support.

Professional nurses are in high demand, and the career outlook is excellent. The nursing profession offers security in an ever-changing economy. A Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) provides the graduate with preparation for licensure as a registered nurse as well as a foundation for pursuit of advanced nursing practice. A BSN graduate is expected to be a leader. However, the faculty maintains that one must enter the profession of nursing for the right reason… to care for others.

Our nursing program is committed to the ministry of nursing and developing Christian nurses who are dedicated to excellence. We follow the example established by Jesus Christ and hope to care for others in the same manner as our Savior. Nursing provides a wonderful opportunity for ministry.

As reflected in the mission statement, nursing at Kentucky Christian University offers the student the ability to earn a degree in a Christ-centered academic environment. The Yancey School of Nursing is also a small program which affords the opportunity for low faculty to student ratios. Students receive very personal instruction from faculty and frequent advising. Faculty knows students by name and supports student success. Students are expected to develop personally, spiritually, and professionally during their time with the Yancey School of Nursing program. Please prayerfully consider how the Lord may use you in this wonderful profession.

Thriving in the Classroom

“Learning how to teach from a Christian perspective has taught me to face the challenges of the classroom with a positive attitude, rather than the negativity the world so often throws at us. KCU’s education department prepared me to not just survive my first year of teaching, but to thrive.”

Lela Ratliff, KCU Class of 2013
