A Message from the Dean of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences

At the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, we offer bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral degree and certificate programs in select specialty areas. Our expert faculty members have designed curricula to enable our learners and graduates to impact patient, systems, and population outcomes. We do this by maintaining close collaborative relationships with our colleagues in practice to ensure we are appropriately focusing on current and emerging needs. In addition, our school curriculum framework focuses all programs on developing competencies in the critical areas of interprofessional teamwork, quality improvement, evidence-based practice, and information management.

Our rigorous online competency-based coursework is designed to engage the learner and make learning immediately applicable. All our courses incorporate real-world assignments that reflect the challenges of the practice environment. Our goal is to give learners the opportunity to demonstrate competencies using real tools, processes, and practices. Learning takes place in a highly supportive environment enriched with multiple resources aimed at assisting with success.

Thank you for choosing us as your partner on your educational journey.
