School of Nursing

Our rigorous nursing programs provide you with the knowledge, skills, and critical thinking abilities to know how to handle the life-and-death situations that nurses face every day. Caring for people who are sick and afraid requires more than the ability to give an injection or set up an IV. You’ll see this as you work in hospitals, Alzheimer’s units, psychiatric centers, health departments, physician’s offices and other healthcare settings with a team of professors who have more than 100 years of combined clinical experience. It’s a deep compassion and a Christian commitment to loving people that make our professors – and our graduates – stand out from the crowd.

In Their Words


Amanda Gaster“I definitely wanted to have the Christian element in my education – and I thought that University of Mobile would be the best spot to have both the Christian worldview and nursing combined.”
