Immaculata University’s Division of Nursing has been educating nurses for more than 30 years and has over 4,600 alumni.

Immaculata’s faculty teach a holistic approach to nursing practice, in keeping with the core values of the university. The faculty believe that nursing is an art and a science that cares for patients as whole persons — composed of mind, body and spirit — who are unique, valuable members of their cultures and communities. Immaculata nurses help patients to promote, restore, and maintain their health, and to die in comfort and with dignity.
