So He got up from the meal, took off His outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around His waist. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash His disciple’s feet, drying them with a towel that was wrapped around Him.  John 13: 4-5 NIV Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. John 13: 14-15

California Board of Registered Nursing approval Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education Program Distinctives:

At PLNU, we recognize that nursing is sacred work and that our work spans the whole of the human experience-birth, growth, maturity, death. In today’s complex, and often chaotic, healthcare systems, it takes courage to be a confident and authentic nurse leader entering positions of influence and holistic advocacy at the highest levels of practice.

Graduate programs are designed for the working nurse in mind. As nurses, we find ourselves working and going to school and managing the myriad of responsibilities. The cohort model provides support and encouragement as you journey through the program with fellow students who bring diversity of experience and expertise.  Staff and faculty embrace a learning environment where your unique strengths are fostered.
