Department of Nursing

There's never been a better time to consider a career in nursing, and if you're looking for an education that focuses on humanity, intention, and heart, there's nowhere to begin like Gonzaga's Department of Nursing.

We offer a humanistic, Jesuit approach to nursing across three degrees — a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), a Master of Science in nursing (MSN), and a doctoral degree in nursing practice (DNP) — and a whole host of programs.

Why Gonzaga?

While you’re crunching numbers and schedules, trying to choose a nursing program that will fit your life and goals, we’d love to share some of our best features with you:

  • Experience. Our graduate-level nursing programs have been delivering distance education for more than 30 years. Our faculty is experienced in working with online students and teaching in online platforms.
  • Practicing Faculty. Gonzaga nursing faculty walk the talk. All nurse practitioner faculty still actively work in healthcare and provide students access to current healthcare policy issues, evolving trends, and real-world challenges facing the industry.
  • The Jesuit Ethos. You'll experience the subtle, yet intentional infusion of the Jesuit mission of men and women for others. This humanistic approach creates a community that encourages an exchange of knowledge with and among the faculty, the students, and the communities in which you live and work to impact change.
  • Accreditation. Gonzaga is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). Our BSN, MSN, and DNP programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, 655 K Street, NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20036, (202) 887-6791.
