For InterVarsity Staff

Ministry to Nursing Students

As InterVarsity staff, you have unique opportunities to equip and train nursing students to follow Jesus in nursing.

“InterVarsity has been the biggest part of my college career. It’s where I met some very dear friends, grew into a leader (which I NEVER thought I was!), and got into a relationship with the Lord that has changed my life. My life is for Jesus now, and God worked so powerfully through the ministry of InterVarsity to do that.
--Megan, senior nursing major
