The School of Nursing has been a national leader in nursing education since founded in 1928. The School has achieved a national reputation for its innovative and pioneering programs and we are among a handful of accredited schools to offer bachelor's, master's, and doctoral programs. Our programs are nationally recognized for their innovative and comprehensive curricula and we have welcomed students from across the country and around the world into our program.
The School of Nursing was the first school in the United States to establish a second degree Accelerated BSN program, first Accelerated Generalist Master of Science in Nursing program in Missouri, and the first nursing school in Missouri to offer a PhD program in nursing. The School became the first in the nation to offer complete master's degree programs online and the second in the state to offer the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP).
Throughout the years, School of Nursing faculty have played a pivotal role in advancing the growing field of nursing research. Current faculty research focuses on measures to test feeding tube placement, sensory problems in long-term care elders, sustaining exercise in middle age and elderly, nursing diagnosis, falls and fear of falling, health systems, adolescent mothers, physical activity, obesity, asthma and pain in children, bioterrorism and emerging infections, and other topics.
The School of Nursing is located at the Medical Center Campus of Saint Louis University. The Medical Center also includes the schools of Medicine and Public Health, the Doisy College of Health Sciences, and the centers for Health Care Ethics and Advanced Dental Education.
We hope you join one of our programs and over 8,500 nursing graduates as caring, competent nursing professionals.
