Advanced Concepts in Nursing Put Into Practice

The Lienhard School of Nursing is unique for two very important reasons. The first is our commitment to leadership. We are dedicated to innovation and excellence, and that means you get the finest education possible. You learn through the experience and expertise of the very best, and by exposure to cutting edge theory, technique, and technology. The second reason for choosing Lienhard is Pace’s University-wide commitment to opportunity. That means you are afforded every chance to learn, to practice, to experience, and, ultimately, to succeed. We all choose nursing for different reasons. To many, it's about helping others. Some dream of leadership. Others focus on personal growth. The Lienhard School of Nursing is here to help you define and achieve your goals, whatever they may be.


The Lienhard School of Nursing will be a leader in innovation and excellence in education, research, and practice in primary health care.


LSN prepares diverse nursing leaders in primary health care by supporting innovative pedagogy with technology, integrating scholarship with practice, and fostering partnerships among professionals and communities.
