St. John's College 

Ensuring the best care possible through education


Founded in 1886 by the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis, St. John’s College of Nursing is one of the leading nursing schools in the region. Much more than just an educational program, St. John’s College provides students with hands-on patient experience and individualized guidance from expert faculty mentors.

Your gift to HSHS St. John’s Foundation is an investment in the future of health care in our community. Support for St. John’s College ensures students and faculty have access to the best educational resources available while also providing nursing students the scholarships necessary to realize their dreams. We imagine a healthier tomorrow by providing our nursing students with every opportunity they need to learn, grow and thrive – today. 



St. John's College of Nursing opened a new Simulation Center in June 2016. The Simulation Center has six clinical settings: an operating room, an emergency room, medical/surgical patient room, a pediatric room, an exam room, a skills lab and classrooms. It will be used in every course the college offers.
