Informed by a Christian worldview, APU’s nursing school prepares professional nurses for leadership and collaborative practice in health care.

Through innovative programs and expert faculty, nursing students engage in challenging discussions, mentoring relationships in small classroom settings, invaluable hands-on experiences in state-of-the-art simulation labs, and a culturally diverse practice environment that includes both study abroad and global research opportunities.

  • Become strategic thinkers, educated as transformational leaders in evolving health care systems.
  • Practice from strong ethical principles based on a foundation of Christian values.
