Student introducing themselves to a patient.

We welcome you to the College of Nursing and commend you on your choice of profession.

Bachelor, Masters, and Doctoral prepared Registered Nurses are vital members of the health care team and are given the responsibilities of serving society and assisting patients during times of illness or injury. We will do all we can to provide you with the best education and training possible. However, you must take an active role in your education to learn the foundational theories and skills in order to prepare yourself for the responsibilities that lie ahead of you. Your interest, motivation, and dedication to this profession will bring many rewards as you complete your educational program and move into your new role with the health care team. We wish you success as you pursue your course of study!
