About Linfield's School of Nursing

Linfield University has long been recognized as a leader in private higher education. In 1982, Linfield joined together with the Good Samaritan Hospital and Medical Center to establish the oldest nursing education program in the Pacific Northwest.

In 2018, Linfield acquired a 20-acre location in northeast Portland slated to become the new home of our School of Nursing in the spring of 2021. Renovations are currently under way.

This much-anticipated expansion will increase Linfield's capacity of teaching spaces and highly equipped learning labs to continue educating some of the most sought-after health care professionals in the nation.

Today, we we offer three options for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, and our new fully online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program.

An inclusive learning environment balancing theory and practice.

We believe health care is a fundamental right. Our diverse and inclusive learning environment fosters a commitment to social justice and global and multicultural awareness. Respect for multiple perspectives guides our care, our rigorous and innovative curriculum, and our dedication to your professional as well as personal development.

We've found that our future nurses thrive in this supportive community environment. When you're valued for your individual learning style and past knowledge and practical experience, powerful things happen – for you, and for our local and global communities. 

Our long-standing commitment continues.

Linfield University School of Nursing faculty are passionate about your success. They invest their time and energy working side-by-side with you from day one. These quality and caring relationships will inspire, push and challenge you at every turn in your pursuit of becoming a nurse.

But it's more than just your academic journey – it's about you becoming a caring, compassionate, well-rounded human being setting out to make a difference in the world.

We cannot wait to meet you.
