The American University of Health Sciences is a fundie school in Signal Hill, California. The AUHS is supposedly a quality private Christian health science university focusing on Pharmacy and Nursing.[1] But since the school places a heavy emphasis on their Christian beliefs and supports creationism, it is dubious how much quality it has.

Accreditation[edit]

AUHS holds national accreditation from the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools and specialized accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.[2] The school of pharmacy however does not hold accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education which accredits pharmacy programs.[3] This leaves some doubt as to whether their school of pharmacy is actually any good.

Fundamentalist hotbed[edit]

The AUHS has highly religious fundamental Christian material all over their website. There is even a category called, "God". Not even Bob Jones University has their religion section named that.

Remember, in order to be a good medical professional you must believe in creationism, biblical literalism and "traditional" family life. Being gay is bad according to their statement of faith.

Academics[edit]

AUHS has bachelor's through master's degrees both of research and professional nature. The university is divided into a School of Nursing and School of Pharmacy.
