Clarkson College has not always been a college. Instead, we began in 1888 as a school of nursing—the first in the state of Nebraska. Over the last 125 years, we've established a new campus, expanded our program offerings and adopted a new name. All the while, we've maintained a commitment to preparing our students to be the best in various realms of health care. This commitment to excellence has and always will remain a defining quality of Clarkson College.
At Clarkson College, you don't just study health care—you prepare to be the best in it. All around you are professionally trained faculty, practicing clinicians and classmates who share the belief that they, too, can better the lives of others. With eight fields and twenty majors to choose from, you have a broad range of options for making a difference—quite possibly even before you graduate.
Clarkson College welcomes undergraduate and graduate students, transfer and international students, and adults who are returning to college to continue their studies or advance their health care careers. Here, you'll find everything you need to get started.
The Student Financial Services department helps provide opportunities for talented, dedicated and deserving students to attend Clarkson College. Whether you're seeking scholarships and grants, loans, payment plans, or a combination, we'll help you find the answer most suitable for you.
