Enrollment in our undergraduate and graduate programs has grown from 2,200 to 4,000 in the last decade, due, in part, to our commitment to making high-quality education available online and through convenient evening and weekend formats.

The College of St. Scholastica aspires to be a diverse and inclusive academic community of excellence, grounded in the rich Catholic Benedictine heritage, sending forth thoughtful leaders sharpened and sensitized by the liberal arts, who are prepared and committed to serve and transform the world.

Welcome to The College of St. Scholastica community.

Welcome to the School of Nursing.
Cathy Johnson:
My role as the Administrative Specialist for the Department of Non-Traditional Nursing is to provide program support by reporting, managing and organizing departmental and operational processes. This position also provides administrative support to the Department Chair, Arlene Johnson.

A little about myself....I am married with 3 children. My husband, Todd, is the CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Northland. My daughter, Alyssa, just finished her 2nd year at CSS (19 years old), my son, Brandon, is a senior at Denfeld High School (18 years old) and my son, Nathan, is a 9th grader at Denfeld High School (15 years old). We are a busy family, particularly in the winter as all 3 kids play hockey. In the summer, I enjoy any outdoor activity, especially time spent by or on a lake.
Introducing Lyndsay!

But Wait!!!
There's more!
Who's Who?
and what do they do???
What does that mean?

What's next?
Where do I go from here?
The INVITE Program is for military veterans that are pursuing a BS in Nursing in the traditional undergraduate nursing track here at the College of St. Scholastica. The program will help veterans with the challenges that are presented when transitioning from military life and culture to the life of a student.

Jeff Pearson
: In my position as the recruitment/retention specialist, I work to raise external awareness for the program and provide prospective students with the information they need to determine if the program is a good fit. I also work with current students to make sure they are resourced.

Up until two months ago when I started here, I had only lived in the Twin Cities. So, I am still getting used to living up here in the northland and love it so far. Let’s see, some other fun facts about me…. I’m a huge dog lover. If you ever need a dog sitter/dog walker, let me know! I’m passionate about history and almost pursued a career as a college history professor. I still spend my spare time consuming history books and documentaries. Also, I may have been born in the 90s, but I almost exclusively listen to music from the 1970s and 80s. Aerosmith, AC/DC and Boston are among my favorite bands. Lastly, I love really spicy foods, particularly buffalo wings!
Dr. Julie Anderson
was appointed Dean of the School of Nursing and Professor of Nursing in August 2015.

Dr. Anderson is a distinguished nursing educator, researcher, administrator and policy advisor. She came to CSS from the University of North Dakota.

Dr. Anderson is a strong advocate for the School of Nursing while at the same time supporting the strategic direction of the College. As leader of the School of Nursing she is responsible for resource management, academic personnel management, internal operations, and external and government relations.
For over 100 years, The College of St. Scholastica has been preparing nurses for successful careers in healthcare. Now, our School of Nursing, one of the largest in Minnesota, is expanding to Phoenix to offer our signature Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program to help meet the growing demand for advanced practice nurses in Arizona.
