When your compassionate heart and calling to heal finds a proven and distinguished School of Nursing, powerful things happen. At PBA, we offer some of the most respected nursing programs in Florida, characterized by exceptional labs and facilities, opportunities to apply your skills in real-world settings and serve those in need.
In the School of Nursing, we strongly believe, and teach our students, that true healthcare involves sociocultural understanding and spiritual encouragement in addition to the physical. You’ll find opportunities for hands-on learning in local hospitals, clinics and community outreach programs, as well as internship programs and service trips through the Gregory Center for Medical Missions. And upon the successful completion of your first semester of your junior year you’ll qualify to work as a nurse technician at most local hospitals. Our programs include:
Our nursing programs are among the best in Florida. And we’re the only Christian university nursing program in the state that’s nationally accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). As a student here you’ll have access to advanced patient simulation resources and nursing lab technologies. With concepts of faith at the center of everything you experience, you’ll gain a more well-rounded preparation. And we offer a program for high school seniors who, upon meeting the qualifications, can be pre-admitted to the nursing program.
The School of Nursing faculty is comprised of expert, experienced nurse leaders who have a passion for training and mentoring the next generation of nurses. They bring years of experience at places such as Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center in West Palm Beach; Bethesda Memorial Hospital in Boynton Beach, Florida; Good Samaritan Medical Center; and Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Our nursing graduates have consistently proven themselves to be among the best prepared as they enter the professional world. We’ve graduated 13 classes from our BSN program, and to date our graduates have achieved a weighted average pass rate of 96 percent on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX). And you’ll find our alumni working at places such as:
Cody Peters ’18 is a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Nurse at St. Mary’s Medical Center at Palm Beach Children’s Hospital.
Amanda Marie Sanz ’18 is a nurse specializing in neonatology at Emory Healthcare’s Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Our student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1 means faculty will mentor you.
