Your work is more than a job — it’s a sacred calling. You meet people in their weakest, most vulnerable, and joyful moments. Your patients need more than your skills and technology alone; they need your compassion, humble strength, and spiritual understanding.
At PLNU, we believe nursing is sacred work. That’s why we provide you with the best knowledge and practices while also focusing on the spiritual and emotional side of caring for patients. We challenge you to make nursing care the best it can be for patients because this is work that deeply matters. If you have an MSN degree, earning your CNS certification can prepare you to do even more in the field you love.
Faithfully serve others — and fulfill your purpose.
A Strong Impact
When you become a CNS, you will be prepared to advance the standard of care in your area of specialization. When you earn your CNS from PLNU, you will focus on the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of nursing and your specialty, preparing you to make a big impact on patients’ holistic care.
Move through the program together with a small, diverse cohort of peers for continued encouragement and supportive friendships. Small classes allow for in-depth discussion and quality interactions with professors. You will also learn to care for yourself to better serve your patients.
A Healthy Future
The hands-on, evidence-based instruction, clinical hours, mentoring, and networking opportunities through an extensive alumni group, as well as PLNU’s strong nursing reputation in San Diego, set the stage for your continued career success after graduation
