 Why AU Nursing?

We prepare you with quality instruction to become a healthcare professional that contributes to the restoration of physical, mental and spiritual health starting with yourself.

Is Nursing for Me?

Our approach to education centers on encouraging our students to live wholly and learn deeply by centering on the whole you:

Now Nursing is rated in the Top Ten Professions for Guaranteed Employment!


There is a large demand for Registered Nurses (RNs) both nationally and internationally. Nursing is a respected profession, with opportunities to work in diverse environments coupled with a rewarding pay scale.

More and more employers are looking for nurses who hold a bachelor's level degree. Greater still is the demand for nurses educated in an environment based on the precepts of holistic health promotion and Christian service.

Founded in Christian Philosophy

Most importantly, our program is based on the conceptual framework of "restoration to the image of God."

The training we offer is based on cutting-edge science as well as restorative recommendations from the Spirit of Prophecy—recommendations that have been validated by present-day scientists.

In fact, area hospital staff and patients have identified our students’ exceptional skills and knowledge within this spiritual structure as a positive quality.

Our motivation is Christian care and our practice is Christian service.

Culturally and Socially Comprehensive

Students complete our program with the unique experience of studying, socializing and providing care within a diverse group of people.

Students study, work and interact in a broad and multi-cultural socioeconomic population.

Our campus is known for its cultural diversity, and clinical fieldwork occurs across all socioeconomic levels.

Provided by Active Professionals

Here you will connect with teachers who maintain current practice in their specialties. In the classroom, they incorporate and address issues relating to their areas of the nursing profession. Accreditation teams have identified our dedicated, caring, committed faculty as a pattern of strength in our program.



Our students connect with subject matter with their own eyes, ears and hands by receiving clinical instruction in a variety of supervised experiences and internship opportunities.
We also offer you immediate access as a professional healthcare provider in an acute care setting while you are still a student, which increases your salary offers upon graduation.

Andrews University School of Nursing offers:


1. A direct track NCLEX (National Council on Licensure Examination) preparatory.

2. A completion program for Registered Nurses (RNs).

Both result in a Bachelor of Science in Nursing

We also offer a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program with an emphasis in Family Nurse Practitioner.

Andrews is the first Seventh-day Adventist nursing program to offer a program allowing students to move directly from a Bachelor of Science track to the DNP; this preparation will provide Advanced Practice Nurses for mission fields far and near.
