John A. Ware School of Nursing

Go further with a nursing degree from the University of La Verne.

We understand the critical role nurses play in optimal health and well-being and offer a differentiated approach to nursing education. If you are an RN wishing to advance your career with new knowledge and leadership skills, we offer a Post-Licensure RN-BSN degree with skills that help nurses go further and make a greater impact.

Quality, Accessible Private Nursing Education

To enhance the qualifications of our workforce, we offer additional education to licensed registered nurses (RNs) through our BS degree completion program. Our quality nursing education program is easily accessible through our Blackboard LMS.

Our Differentiation is Your Competitive Edge

We teach our nursing students person-centered nursing care:

  • A holistic nursing practice that considers the biological, emotional, and socio-economic factors of the person.
  • A philosophy of providing care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs, and values and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions (IOM, 2005).
  • An individualized, goal-oriented, community-based health assessment and care plan of the person’s preferences.

These are highly marketable clinical practice skills that enable our BSN-prepared graduates to perform holistic nursing care with their culturally diverse patients and communities they serve.

Our Students are Well-Suited to Serve Diverse Populations

As a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) with a culturally diverse student population, our students and BSN graduates are prepared to provide culturally competent person-centered nursing care. Our faculty teach the impact of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), and the vital role of nurses addressing SDOH in communities.
