Students also benefit from giving back to the community through involvement in NNU's chapter of the Student Nursing Association (SNA).
Learning opportunities are also available through international mission trips to places like Nicaragua, Ukraine and Peru. Putting new skills to practice allows students to gain experience while touching lives, stretching one's faith.

The NNU Nursing Program has held accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) since 2002, and the University is accredited by Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. Originally, diplomas were granted in the 1920s in alliance with the Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing. Later in 1974, NNU's nursing program continued its rich history of preparing individuals for the nursing profession while granting degrees in partnership with a local state school.
