WHY VILLANOVA NURSING?
We innovate and educate. We build nursing science that informs practice. We live and breathe Villanova University's Augustinian values in our approach to nursing as a profession, mission and healing ministry in a diverse society.
You will graduate ready to care, research, teach, advocate and discover. As you graduate you will enhance a powerful, compassionate alumni network whose members serve the vulnerable, think globally and lead.
We make personalized investments in you—whether you're new to nursing or more seasoned in your career. You will be challenged in an integrated way to be an independent thinker and problem solver, a nurse who contributes to the profession and promotes health for patients and populations. You will collaborate with faculty experts and have access to superior clinical and teaching resources in Driscoll Hall and around the globe. Because we are committed to creating unique and compelling opportunities for you to learn and advance, we are consistently honored by the National League for Nursing as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education.
