About the Nursing Programs

LMU's cornerstone belief is service to humanity, and few professions embody this belief like nursing. Nurses help people attain and regain wellness. In addition, nurses work with individuals, families, and community groups, helping them adapt to changes—in their needs, their roles, and their relationships—brought on by changes in health. At LMU, nursing students receive the training and education needed to become qualified nurses capable of succeeding in the 21st century health care environment. Students are also held to the high moral and ethical standards, as well as a sense of personal responsibility, that are vital to nursing.

NOTE: We thank you for your interest in our Nursing Programs here at LMU! Should you choose to apply, please remember, you can only apply for ONE program. If you are interested in our undergraduate programs, you may only apply for either the ASN or BSN. If you are having trouble deciding, please don’t hesitate to contact us in order to ask questions that will aid you in this decision. Thanks!”
