Caring to make a difference

The School of Nursing offers a diverse range of undergraduate and graduate options for students with various academic and professional backgrounds. All of our programs place an emphasis on holism, interprofessionalism and inclusivity, and provide a deep level of practical experience, in the classroom, laboratory and in clinical settings.

Every member of our full-time faculty has a doctoral degree, and many of them are practicing professionals. They bring decades of practical knowledge and skill to the classroom, and are committed to providing you with the individual attention you need to be prepared for a successful career. You’ll learn how to treat a spectrum of patient needs and work collaboratively with other health care professionals in any clinical environment.


Superior credentials

All of our full-time faculty in the School of Nursing hold doctoral degrees, and many of them are actively practicing. This powerful combination of knowledge, experience and accessibility is uncommon in nursing education.
