Dean’s Welcome

Welcome to the Loma Linda University School of Nursing. You are part of a long legacy - the first legacy - of Loma Linda University. As the most trusted profession in America, there has never been a better time to meet the needs of our local, regional, national and global population.

You will be challenged and supported in becoming nurses who transform lives with professional excellence and compassion, transforming leaders in education, clinical practice, and research. But more than that, while you are a student here, we want to provide you with opportunities to grow spiritually and to develop practices focused on whole person care, all with the mission to continue the teaching and healing ministry of Jesus Christ.

The Student Handbook has been put together to inform you of the school and the University policies and expectations. The policies within are meant to guide you and protect you. Please avail yourself of the resources available to you both within the school and the University to assist you in growing as a whole person as well as a professional. May the Lord belss you and keep you as you study here at Loma Linda University School of Nursing.
