Since 1946, Florida College has been dedicated to providing students with an education that is founded on Biblical principles. The Florida College nursing program, launching fall 2021, will prepare Florida College students to serve their Creator and humanity in a completely new and different way.
Meet two of the future nursing faculty members who arrived on campus this fall!
DR. MINERVA HOLK graduated from Florida College in 1972 with her associate degree. She went on to pursue her bachelor of nursing at Murray State University and then master’s degree at Indiana University majoring in maternal/newborn and minoring in perinatology. She completed her doctorate in educational leadership with an emphasis in nursing education at the University of Washington and has taught at Olympic College for 25 years.
Dr. Holk has an extensive background in maternal child health nursing, curriculum development, core ability implementation and community health. She has been consulting with Florida College since August 2019 and will be the chair of Florida College’s nursing program (pending SACS accreditation).
The nursing courses will be integrated with the liberal arts curriculum, in addition to the Bible courses, to provide a comprehensive college experience designed to develop students spiritually, mentally, physically and socially for lives of service to their Creator and to humanity.
