Since opening our doors as the first private nursing school in California, we’ve committed all of our resources to ensure USF doctoral students leave our campus prepared not only for successful health care careers, but equipped to improve the lives of their patients and peers.

We’ve designed our Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) programs to embrace progressive thought that draws on the values of our Jesuit mission. State-of the-art facilities, full-time Fulbright Scholars and more than 200 Bay Area health care institutions provide doctoral students with every opportunity to advance their career.

The result is a top 40 nursing school (according to U.S. News & World Report) and a distinguished 4,500 graduate alumni network that spans the globe.


The School of Nursing and Health Professions offers an annual merit scholarship in addition to scholarship funding based on availability. Learn more about financial aid opportunities.
