The Villanova Nursing experience is a unique, challenging and carefully designed one that enables you to live your best professional life. Whether you partner with us after high school or as a more seasoned adult, this is an education that changes not just what you know, but how you think.

It’s diving into nursing science, even conducting research with faculty mentors. It’s imagining what should be, then innovating and disrupting the status quo as you move nursing and health care forward.

It’s exposure to people and places, clinical experiences, sustainable collaborations with the community and global health initiatives on nearly every continent, all of which extend your learning and reflect deeply rooted values in service to the vulnerable.  

It’s a community where you grow your network and professional skill to lead in your practice and in nursing.

It’s a special synergy through strong relationships with classmates, engaged alumni, and faculty who collaborate with you.   

Ready to ignite change? Blaze a trail? Here comes the spark.
