As an Alcorn student, you’ll learn that nursing is both an art and a science. You’ll combine practical, fact-based knowledge and skills with the ability to care for all aspects of a client's physical, social, and psychological.

The School of Nursing offers program for every student level. Our associate degree program prepares you to become a registered nurse, and bachelor’s 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 awareness for intellectual inquiry for 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.

By fostering a culture of excellence, innovation and intellectual rigor faculty, staff, and students embrace the core values of holism, integrity, professionalism, diversity, accountability, competence, and leadership in the transformation of the healthcare landscape.  Through collaboration and a process of engagement, faculty, staff, and students within the School of Nursing serve the university, the community, practice environments, and the nursing profession.  Scholarly activities address vulnerable and underserved populations; health promotion, maintenance and restoration; and nursing education.
