Nursing Department

George Fox University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program is built upon a liberal arts foundation and Christian principles.

Our nursing program is approved by the Oregon State Board of Nursing and is one of five nursing schools in Oregon with a baccalaureate program accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN) for licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN).

Students have the opportunity to engage in learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. Clinical experiences take place in a variety of acute care and community healthcare institutions and agencies and allow students to gain valuable experience in professional nursing practice.

Our nursing program offers students the opportunity to prepare for areas such as acute care, cardiology, emergency, home care, hospice, obstetrics, oncology, pediatrics, school nursing and medical missions.

The goal of the School of Nursing is to develop competent, professional nurses who will:

  • Be imitators of Christ
  • Serve as leaders in providing holistic health care to a global community
  • Foster an attitude of lifelong learning
  • Be prepared for graduate education
