Sacred Work

PLNU’s School of Nursing (SON) is known for fostering meaningful relationships. So much of nursing involves interacting with patients on a personal level, and we want to prepare you for this as well as for the practical aspects of the job. Our faculty is committed to ensuring you receive the attention you deserve in classes that will enrich your nursing practice. You will be given opportunities to serve others and will benefit from lifelong support from our School of Nursing community.
