Pursue a Career with Heart in the Heartland at Avila University
For more than 70 years, the Avila University School of Nursing has graduated exceptional nurses prepared to provide compassionate care to patients and act as leaders for the profession. It is located on a 50-acre campus in suburban Kansas City, Missouri. From here, you can build new skills and create new memories, whether it’s through connecting with fellow students in the Quad or exploring our exciting, vibrant home city.
Our campus is based in south Kansas City, about a mile from the Kansas-Missouri state border. Situated south of I-435, we are steps away from the Red Bridge neighborhood and on the Wornall 57 bus route.
Please note that we recommend having access to a car, especially when attending clinical sites off-campus.
