School of Nursing

A National Leader in Nursing Education

You’ll be challenged to learn more about the human body than you might have thought possible. Yet in the end, what you learn about most at Saint Louis University’s School of Nursing just might be yourself.

Through our innovative approach to nursing education, we dive deeper to discover the strength, spirit and compassion required to provide patients with unparalleled care. We’re pioneering a path that is shaping the future of our field.

SLU has been a national leader in nursing education since 1928. We created the first accelerated B.S.N. and comprehensive online M.S.N. programs in the country. Our success shows. In 2016, 92.6 percent of our graduates passed the NCLEX – a rate nine points higher than the national average. In 2017, U.S. News and World Report ranked our MSN-NP program number 35 in their Best Online Master’s in Nursing survey.
