Integrated Experiential Learning (IEL) Course:

In the final course of the RN to BSN program, there is a Service Learning experience. The Service Learning activity is completed in the local community and is uniquely suited to the mission of Linfield University and to the community-based philosophy of the nursing curriculum.  The Service Learning experience is an approach to nursing leadership in the community that explores non-traditional sites and diverse experiences that provide valuable preparation for health promotion, cultural awareness, and leadership in our global community.
