If people post other programs I will add and maintain.
This is probably worth being a sticky - even to just help destroy the myth.
Yes, it is a lot of work - but yes, it is possible. Same with any other academic goal.

My daughter's pitching coach was a pitcher at St. Francis in Joliet, IL. (NAIA).

She did have to go back for one extra semester due to softball conflicting with a couple of her clinical classes. Overall I would say it worked out very well for this person.

Winona State in Winona Minnesota. DII Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference

Competitive team in tough conference. Also I’m told these are the kind of coaches you want your kid playing for.

I don't know if the softball program is nursing friendly for the students,, but Long Beach State has a good nursing program and feeds employees right in to my wife's hospital in Long Beach.

This is a phenomenal list and something that I don’t see talked about often enough! I think there are plenty of kids (and parents) who don’t realize that college sports can be incompatible with their studies sometimes. It was a shocker for us when my daughter wanted to declare as a nursing major.

Kudos!

D2 national champion Augustana SD is known for their nursing program.

St Catherine’s DIII in MN is also nursing major friendly.
