Turning Passion Into Purpose
“Coming to college, all I knew about my future was that I wanted to help people. The
School of Nursing helped me turn that vague aspiration into a tangible occupation.
We have an incredible faculty who intentionally fuse the Jesuit approach of cura personalis — care of the entire person — into every lecture and clinical experience. Our curriculum
not only teaches us how to treat people, but how to truly care for them.”
Enfermería en España
“SLU nursing students have the opportunity to complete clinical rotations in multiple hospitals in the St. Louis area and beyond. One of my favorite rotations was at Hospital Zarzuela in Madrid, Spain. It provided great exposure to international health care and allowed me to practice medical terminology in Spanish while practicing nursing skills.”
“Health Care Ethics is a must-take class! Whether you're interested in medicine or not, the topics discussed are relevant and interesting. The class challenges you to consider the most difficult and important health care scenarios you could potentially face.”
