The School of Nursing offers programs for every student level. Our associate degree program prepares one to become a registered nurse, and the bachelor degree programs are available both for current nurses and for those new to nursing. Our master’s degree and post-master’s certificate programs focus on the fields of nurse practitioner and nurse educator.


Through teaching, scholarship, and service, the School of Nursing provides comprehensive nursing programs that prepare nurses with the capacity to advance the health and well-being of diverse populations.  From an undergraduate perspective, study is designed to prepare nurses with an awareness for intellectual inquiry central to entry-level practice.  Graduate study is designed to prepare scholarly nurse specialists with the capacity to assume advanced nursing roles in practice, teaching, and research.
