Nursing

The mission of the Department of Nursing is to prepare students to become competent nursing professionals who integrate Christian caring into their nursing practice.

What will I study?

The Nursing program is built on a Christian philosophy which integrates theological studies with professional nursing knowledge and skills. With a foundation in the sciences and clinical experience, the nursing student can earn his/her Bachelor of Science in Nursing which is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing and accredited by The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

Why choose Nursing at Biola?

The nursing program at Biola University offers the unique advantage of having grown out of the School of Missionary Medicine. In keeping with this strong heritage, students are taught to view nursing as a ministry wherever they choose to serve. Emphasis on missions and ministry opportunities continue as students spend time at nurse-run clinics for the homeless and in Mexico.
