About AUHS

Since its founding by Kim Dang-Johnson and her husband Pastor Gregory Johnson in 1994, American University of Health Sciences has enjoyed a rich history. AUHS was founded as a Christian based, private, for profit, postsecondary education institute created to provide excellence in education for students interested in a career in healthcare, and this is a mission it still carries out to this day.

At AUHS, students can obtain healthcare degrees in the school of nursing, school of pharmacy or clinical research professions. With every student that AUHS has welcomed in the university’s twenty-three year history, the faculty at AUHS have strived to provide them not only with the education they need to excel in these careers, but also the spiritual and personal training needed to excel in all aspects of life.

In 2003, the American University of Health Sciences was established as a corporation and achieved Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) accreditation. In 2017 AUHS achieved the following accreditations:  Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS), and reaffirmation of the BSN program by the Collegiate Commission of Nursing Education (CCNE). AUHS is also approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) to operate as an accredited degree-granting institution, and by the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) to offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Plans to offer additional graduate programs are in its various stages of development.  These graduate programs include the Doctor of Pharmacy, Master of Science in Nursing with specializations in Family Nursing Practice, Nursing Education, and Nursing Leadership and Administration.

Since its beginning, AUHS has been minority owned and minority serving, placing emphasis on the development of quality allied health professionals for the local and global community. From the foundation of training and health sciences degrees obtained, AUHS graduates are empowered to answer God’s call to provide care and service in the healthcare field to their communities and to the world at large.
