Kentucky Christian University Nursing School Review


Kentucky Christian University is a private four-year university located in Grayson, Kentucky. It was founded in 1919 as a normal school to train teachers, but in the 1920s students began to train for ministry at the university. Both undergraduate and graduate degrees are offered at the university that is affiliated with Christian churches and the Church of Christ. Students at the university experience liberal arts and sciences, professional studies, and biblical studies, and all graduates must have completed a 30-hour Biblical Studies and Theology program. Kentucky Christian University has received awards for being one of the top regional colleges in the South.

There are mission opportunities that students may become involved in, such as traveling to help victims in Haiti or to the inner city of Chicago. Other mission trips have been to many different cities in Mexico and to North Carolina to aid flood victims. Most mission trips occur during breaks in the academic year. An advantage of attending this university is that classes are small with a student to faculty ratio of 16 to one. Also, the financial aid office will help students develop a financial plan free before they begin their freshman year. Many types of scholarships are available as well as federal financial aid.
