Nursing students receive hands-on training at the hospital, local offices, and nursing homes while completing their undergraduate or graduate degree. The undergraduate programs offered include BSN, BA to BSN, LVN to BSN, and RN to BSN. Students must complete the required prerequisite courses at an accredited university or college before enrolling in one of these programs. Loma Linda University also offers graduate programs for those seeking an MS, DNP, or Ph.D. in nursing.
