Rooted in Science, Focused on Health 

What does effective and personalized medical care require? Science, of course. So you explore biology, anatomy, pharmacology, and more. But also, certain intangible qualities like empathy, compassion, and communication. So you fine-tune your ability to provide top-notch care for families, communities, men, women, and children. 

Complete three years at NGU examining the science of life to better understand what makes us thrive. Then, transfer to the Mary Black School of Nursing for a two-year nursing program. Science. Health. And a compassionate, God-honoring approach to healthcare. That’s your future, at NGU.

Experience Learning in the Classroom, the Lab, and the Real World

Hands-On Research and Testing

Participate in faculty-led research with your peers. Teach lab studies under the supervision of your instructor. Practice research techniques and data analysis through various lab and field activities. All to help you grow as a student, teacher, and leader in your chosen area of study.

Medical or Environmental Internships

Earn coursework credit and prepare for nursing school as you shadow medical professionals. Gain real-world experience with local organizations like the Roper Mountain Science Center, and local, state, and federal environmental agencies.

Master the Art of Research and Presentation

Conduct your own research study. Develop your findings into a formal presentation. Share your results at NGU’s annual research symposium. Even accompany faculty members to regional or national meetings. Experience the world of medical and biological research like never before.
