You sense within you a deep call for compassion and care. It’s a call to comfort. A call to serve. A call to love. It’s a call that expands the whole of the human experience--from birth to death, and everything in between.

The call of a nurse is sacred. 

At Point Loma Nazarene University, we understand the inherent sacredness of your 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. 

A Faithful Balance

The program focuses on the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of nursing, providing a balanced approach to learning that integrates education, service, and faith.

Close-knit Collaboration

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.
