School of Nursing


We are accepting applications for the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner DNP program.

Congratulations to our 1st Class of DNP Graduates!

Our first DNP cohort will graduate this Spring. We are so happy to share your success Katie Bates, Biwei Dong, Alexandria Hammann, Matthew Kilgore, Molly Martin and Jessica Wheeler.

Four of the DNP students recently traveled to Denver, Colorado, along with Drs. Mary Lou Robinson and Teri Woo, to present at the Western Institute of Nursing (WIN) conference. Their poster presentations on Saturday were part of the Research and Exchange sessions.

Congratulations Grace Zimmerman!

Grace is receiving the Gilman Award which is given to students with the aim of diversifying the types of students and locations in which they study abroad. She will be studying away in Namibia this coming Spring. Congratulations Grace! Read more about Grace here.

Commitment, Caring and Leadership

Thanks for visiting the PLU School of Nursing!

From this website, prospective students can learn about the mission, history and programs offered, as well as download application materials. Health professionals looking to stay abreast of current issues or return to practice can read about courses offered through Continuing Nursing Education. Our current students can keep informed of important dates and events and download required paperwork. Nursing alumni can learn about current events at the School of Nursing, keep in touch with their fellow graduates, and find ways to contribute to nursing education at PLU.

The PLU difference 

  • PLU is known for its high-quality nursing education.
  • Cohort sizes are small to ensure a high-quality, personable PLU experience.
  • All clinical placements are arranged by the PLU faculty.
