Trudy Busch Valentine School of Nursing

A National Leader in Nursing Education

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

SLU has been a national leader in nursing education since 1928. 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 —we created the first accelerated B.S.N. and comprehensive online M.S.N. programs in the country — and our success shows.

In 2020, 91 percent of our graduates passed the NCLEX on the first try. In 2021, Niche ranked Saint Louis University’s Trudy Busch Valentine School of Nursing as the #8 best college in the country for nursing. Additionally, U.S. News and World Report recently ranked our 4-Year BSN program in the top 7% of undergraduate nursing programs and our MSN-NP program is consistently ranked as a top 50 program in their Best Graduate Schools survey.
