Cura Personalis Magazine

Founded in 2013, Cura Personalis is the annual magazine of the Saint Louis University School of Nursing.

Cura personalis means "to care for the entire person." It was chosen as the magazine's name because nursing is a profession synonymous with caring. Those planning the publication felt the phrase spoke to the School of Nursing’s mission of promoting human dignity and care for the mind, body and spirit of all students.
