About Us

Gonzaga's School of Nursing and Human Physiology 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, 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.
