About Us

Gonzaga's School of Health Sciences builds on the university's lasting commitment to exploring the human sciences and health professions within a Jesuit, Catholic tradition.

We aim to provide you with opportunities to contribute in significant ways to the field of health care as you research with exemplary faculty, pursue social justice by serving vulnerable populations, and engage with health communities locally, nationally, and around the world.

Our Nursing program, accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education ( http://www.ccneaccreditation.org/ ). offers bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees, and focuses on servant leadership, social justice, community and reflective practice. You'll work within the Complex Adaptive Systems framework to explore the essential responsibilities of nursing and the complexity of a health care system that weaves together individuals, organizations, families, and whole communities.

In our Human Physiology program, you'll study the complex, interconnected systems that keep our bodies alive and running as you build the foundation for a career in health and allied health fields, research, teaching, and private industry.

And in our most recent doctoral program — Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP) — you'll not only learn to take your career as a registered nurse to the next level, but you'll explore what it takes to be a leader for the advancement of nurse anesthesia.


To educate and inspire healthcare professionals and scientists to make a positive impact in the world around them.


Rooted in our Jesuit heritage, we strive to cultivate in our students a passion for knowledge, the determination to transform healthcare, the willingness and capacity to be leaders in their disciplines, the courage to work for justice, and the compassion to care for and serve our world.
