FUS is located 24 miles west of the Pittsburgh International Airport in the rolling hills of the upper Ohio valley. FUS is an academically excellent and passionately Catholic university in the Franciscan tradition where faith and reason harmoniously unite in and out of the classroom. The Department of Nursing, guided by the teachings of the Catholic Church, embraces a twofold approach where both the ministry and the profession of nursing are acknowledged, taught, and fostered in order to equip our students to respect the dignity of the human person from conception to natural death, as well as to provide nursing care for the whole person--body, mind, and spirit. Our graduates, who hail from all 50 states and many foreign nations, are also prepared for the unique cultural and ethical issues that confront health care professionals in the 21st century.
