School of Nursing

Your work is more than a job — it’s a sacred calling. You meet people in their weakest, most vulnerable, and joyful moments. To be the nurse your patients need requires more than skills and technology; it requires compassion, humble strength, and spiritual understanding.

The School of Nursing (SON) provides you with a dynamic Christian environment to explore how to provide optimal healthcare through hands-on experience and research. You will have opportunities to build close relationships with other students and faculty in a rigorous, yet supportive environment as you master evidence-based nursing best practices and learn to serve your patients holistically.

Opportunities for Engagement

Developing into an effective and relational nurse, inspired and guided by purpose, doesn't happen in isolation — it happens by coming face-to-face with new opportunities, people, places, and ideas. From getting involved in student-led pre-professional organizations and a semester learning in an underserved multicultural community in San Diego to a summer abroad and more, the SON offers a diversity of opportunities for meaningful engagement with big questions.

Faculty

Our faculty serve as both teachers and mentors, committed to guiding you through a full and purposeful education. By helping you explore thought-provoking and influential ideas, analyze complex and difficult questions, and evaluate competing claims, you'll have access to an environment devoted to a meaningful exchange of ideas. An education at PLNU is both transformative and deeply impactful.
