We are the first private university in Mexico to implement a program for the development of professional nurses in our country. Starting 16 years ago, we have been offering all the necessary tools to our students in order to develop nurses for Mexico.

Our compromise is to educate nurses who are committed to society and to themselves and who make of their profession an essential part of their lives and are capable of fulfilling the needs of their environment. We provide a high level of scientific knowledge which backs up the necessary competencies to face health needs. UP nurses are always outstanding for their ethical and caring attitude.

Our curriculum covers the four areas of nursing: Teaching, Service, Research and Administration.

If you wish to be “a change agent and make an impact”, this is your profession.
