Pacific Lutheran University School of Nursing

The Pacific Lutheran University School of Nursing has a distinguished history of educating students for leadership and lives of service. We view nursing as a caregiving process rooted in scientific knowledge, humanistic theory and health care technology.

Starting in 1951 with our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), we have established a strong reputation for excellence in health care circles across the Pacific Northwest. Today, our education offerings include a BSN-to-MSN program, an Entry-Level MSN program, a Doctor of Nursing Practice program and a 16-month Accelerated BSN program.

Launched in 2022, our ABSN program operates from a satellite facility in Seattle, Washington. This off-campus site features classrooms, faculty offices and state-of-the-art nursing skills and simulation labs where ABSN students develop and hone their core skills and clinical judgment.

Like our traditional BSN, the Accelerated BSN prepares students to enter the profession as skilled generalists and provides a foundation for graduate study.

As one of our nursing students, you can expect a progressive nursing education that emphasizes evidence-based innovations in health care, advocates for continuing and responsible social change, and fosters improved health outcomes.

Health Care Partnerships

Our School of Nursing maintains relationships with some of the best health care facilities in the Pacific Northwest, allowing students to gain real-world nursing experience in diverse areas of clinical practice. While we cannot guarantee where students will complete their clinicals, we make sure they have the opportunity to learn and thrive in an environment that promotes inclusiveness, individual support and collaboration among health care disciplines.
