Our Mission

We promote an engaging learning experience for a diverse group of students focused on the ongoing development of requisite knowledge and clinical judgment skills to provide expert nursing care in a dynamic healthcare environment.

Department Values

Exceptional Care:

We welcome the diverse experiences and perspectives of our students and faculty and denounce discrimination in any form. We strive to view each person as a unique individual who can succeed in a rigorous yet supportive learning environment. We value collegial collaboration as well as academic freedom and encourage the respectful exchange of ideas as a foundational element of the academic setting.

Exceptional Accountability:

We promote professional and ethical standards of practice and behavior as we encourage both students and faculty to exhibit integrity in all aspects of the educational process. We view learning as a teacher-student-community partnership that highlights the roles of the student, instructor, and nurse as accountable agents to themselves, the University, and the communities we serve.

Exceptional Results:

We employ evidence-based teaching and learning strategies to foster the development of caring nurses who promote the health of body, mind, and spirit in individuals, families, communities, and populations. Equipped with the ability to use effective clinical judgment, evidence-based nursing, and ongoing learning our graduates will be prepared to provide effective and compassionate service to members of both local and global communities.
