Welcome to the University of Portland School of Nursing! We are a strong community dedicated to educating nurses who empower patients, families, and communities to embrace healthy living and strive for wellness. Graduates of our programs become innovative, transformational leaders, who embody academic excellence and integrity. We believe that all nurses are healers, advocates, and healthcare leaders who believe that social justice lies at the head, heart, and hands of all that we do.
Lindsay Lancaster Assistant Professor of Nursing
