About the School

It's an exciting time to be a nurse. The face of health care is changing rapidly, and today's nursing student will help to shape tomorrow's world.

The national nursing shortage ensures that all nursing graduates will have little trouble finding employment. But PBA nursing graduates will have an extra advantage! The Christian worldview and faith found throughout our program helps prepare you as nurses who are able to function in our increasingly global healthcare system without losing sight of your values or compromising patient care. PBA's nursing program is the only nationally accredited Christian nursing program in the state of Florida.

In addition to the Christian worldview, PBA's nursing program features a consistent nursing model throughout the program and includes a separate complex-care course. The highlight of the program is the capstone nursing course, which helps our students synthesize their theoretical and practical education with the realities of being a nurse in today's world. It underscores the importance of lifelong learning, and ensures that our graduates are among the top in the nation. Educating tomorrow's nurses is the greatest honor that our faculty has ever had. If you are a prospective student or parent, we invite you to visit PBA's School of Nursing.
