An Academic Culture Rich in Diversity and Inspiration
The University of San Francisco, the city’s first institution of higher learning, was founded in 1855. As one of 28 Jesuit universities in the United States, this institution is built upon Jesuit values offering students a rigorous, global approach to education that prepares a new generation of leaders to create a more humane and just world.
The University of San Francisco School of Nursing and Health Professions was founded in 1954 and instituted the first private university nursing program in California. From its initial launch of graduate degree programs in the 1980s, the school grew to offer the first MSN program with a Clinical Nurse Leader focus in 2005. And by 2007, the school had begun seeking students for the first Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in California. Under the guidance of some of the nation’s leading academic health care professionals, nursing students at the University of San Francisco are offered the leadership and clinical knowledge that can help inspire transformation in the health care system.
