Our primary responsibility is the education of students, who come from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, enabling them to acquire the foundation of knowledge, skills, values, attitudes, and behaviors appropriate for their chosen academic or health-care ministry. We nurture their intellectual curiosity. We facilitate their development into active, independent learners. We provide continuing educational opportunities for our alumni and professional peers. We encourage a personal Christian faith that permeates the lives of those we educate.

Through the nursing honor society, which was established in 1973, the School of Nursing further fosters academic excellence and the pursuit of Christian graces. In 1975, in recognition of the School's aim of excellence, this honor society, by vote of the national society, became an official chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International , the international honor society for nursing. Installation of the Loma Linda University School of Nursing's Gamma Alpha Chapter occurred on April 11, 1976. Students and other nurses of excellence, upon meeting the established criteria, become members by invitation.
LLUSN holds agency memberships and actively participates in the following major professional organizations: American Association of Colleges of Nursing, National League for Nursing, and Western Institute for Nursing.
