The College of Nursing at Brigham Young University was created in an effort to help people of faith develop the necessary skills to become nurses. Our motto, “Learning the Healer’s Art,” is a reminder of the Master Healer, Jesus Christ. The College educates approximately 400 undergraduate students, and about 25 graduate students at any given time.
