LMU's cornerstone belief is service to humanity, and few professions embody this belief like nursing. Nurses help people attain and regain wellness. In addition, nurses work with individuals, families, and community groups, helping them adapt to changes—in their needs, their roles, and their relationships—brought on by changes in health. At LMU, nursing students receive the training and education needed to become qualified nurses capable of succeeding in the 21st century health care environment. Students are also held to the high moral and ethical standards, as well as a sense of personal responsibility, that are vital to nursing.
