Mission Statement

The mission of the nursing program is to “prepare a diverse population of men and women” with the foundation to enhance professional development and “through the advancement of academic programs and services” prepare for a broader scope of practice.

The program will “meet the needs of students equipped to serve their communities” by providing a better understanding of the cultural, political and social issues affecting patients and influence health care delivery locally and beyond. The BSN completion program will “prepare informed citizens, globally competitive leaders and highly effective ethical professionals” through evidence based patient centered experiences in rural, urban and global settings.
