Florence Nightingale, pioneer of health reform in the mid-1800s, once described nursing as "the divine imposed duty of ordinary work."
The work of a nurse spans the whole of the human experience - birth, growth, maturity, death. To be an effective nurse, you need more than skills and technology. You need compassion, caring, and an understanding of the spiritual needs of patients.
As nurses, we know that what we do is sacred work. We'll provide you with a solid education to prepare you for work in the San Diego community and throughout the world.
We are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and are approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing.
