Immanuel Hospital-Midland University School of Nursing Alumni Association

Immanuel Hospital-Midland University School of Nursing Alumni Association

In 1973, the Immanuel School of Nursing facility in Omaha joined with Midland Lutheran College and developed a four-year baccalaureate degree program. Today, Midland University’s nursing program continues to grow through a balanced blend of liberal arts courses designed to enhance the science and clinical practicum courses of the nursing program. Traditional BSN, LPN to BSN, and RN to BSN are offered, providing a range of program options for nursing students.

The Immanuel Hospital-Midland University School of Nursing Alumni Association provides support for projects that will enhance the education of nursing students at Midland University. A nursing reunion is held annually to celebrate the strong heritage built through both the Immanuel and Midland nursing programs. 

The association operates solely on the annual dues paid by the alumni. Over the last 2-3 years, the association has contributed $10,000 to the new Simulation Lab at Methodist Fremont Health, awarded scholarships for travel abroad mission trips, and academic scholarships for nursing students.

Other opportunities to promote nursing education at Midland University include:

  • Kathleen Cheney Scholarship 
  • Harms-Wehrbein Nursing Scholarship
  • Nursing Simulation Lab
  • Dr. Winifred J. Ellenchild Pinch Scholarship
  • Donation in Memory or Honor of a Loved One
