Welcome to Southern University School of Nursing.  Whether you are considering nursing as a career option or thinking about advancing your education, the School of Nursing (SON) is prepared to offer you a rewarding educational experience! Established in 1986, the SON currently offers four degrees: The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN); the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN); the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). The SON is one of the largest producers of African American nurses in the nation and is a prominent leader in preparing students to fulfill the demands for a culturally diverse workforce.

Every day, graduates of our program, across the nation, are actualizing the SON’s motto “Caring is the Essence of Nursing” while embracing our rich heritage.
