Who We Are
Owned and operated by OSF HealthCare , we are a community of professionals inspired by the example of Christ to serve others with the greatest care and love.
We seek students who are motivated by this example to push themselves continuously to improve their skills and better care for people who need it most.
Nurses serve people who are at their most vulnerable, protect their rights and advocate for their wishes.
The role of the nurse is a vital one, and that’s why proper preparation and training are central to everything we do.
Our goal is to provide future nurses with a base of knowledge in theory and practice, and allow them to master the skills they will need to make a difference when they enter the workforce.
Students who truly want to succeed will find that everything they need to seize their future is available at Saint Anthony College of Nursing.
