Clarkson College, Omaha, Nebraska

Clarkson College is a private, coeducational institution in Omaha, Nebraska. The school traces its roots to Omaha's Good Samaritan Hospital, which opened in 1869 and became the forerunner of Bishop Clarkson Memorial Hospital. The first student nurse completed a two-year training period in 1890. Clarkson College confers bachelor's and master's degrees in a variety of health care and business fields. It offers programs of study in nursing, radiography, medical imaging, business, physical therapy, and health services management.
The college is named after Bishop Robert Harper Clarkson (1826-1884). From 1849 to 1865, he was rector of St. James Church, Chicago. In 1865 he was elected missionary bishop of Nebraska and Dakota. He first visited Omaha in December of 1865. In 1868 he was elected the first bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska.

Students and professionals in the health care field confront issues of life and death on a regular basis. These issues can challenge the strongest of spiritual beliefs. Since students must learn how to care for the whole patient, including the spiritual dimension as well as the physical and psychological, courses at Clarkson College explore such topics as death and dying, religious and cultural differences, and ethics and contemporary moral issues. One of the significant benefits of being a church-related college is the ability to speak openly about spiritual issues and to address this important dimension in caring for the sick and dying.
