School of Nursing Logo

Led by our faith, Nursing, for us, is more. It’s more than a classroom of compassionate and eager students; more than a faculty of respected, engaged and caring faculty; and more than a school recognized internationally for our research and thought leadership. Nursing is a vocation, in which one is dedicated to assisting another, caring for society's deepest needs.

TWU Nursing is recognized as a leader in faith-integrated education and is accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing.  The School of Nursing, within the ethos of a Christian university with liberal arts, sciences, and professions, engages students in the integration of faith, spirituality, and nursing. Our courses are taught by faculty members with advanced degrees in nursing and actively involved in the profession through education, research, leadership and clinical practice.

Dean's Message

Feature Card Small

The School of Nursing at TWU is unique in Canada for intentionally connecting the practice of nursing with the holistic richness of Christian spiritual understandings. In our undergraduate and graduate programs we go beyond technical skills and the expected standards required of the profession to emphasize covenantal caring as our commitment to spiritually-sensitive and socially-responsive nursing practice.

Our tagline Think Deeply, Act Justly, and Care Generously signals the thoughtful, transformational, and compassionate approach we are known for. We aim to inspire the hearts and minds of students, so they are equipped to engage with questions of meaning and suffering, reconciliation and growth in our collective contribution to person-centred, equitable healthcare.

We invite you to join our community of nurses.
