Welcome from the Dean of Nursing and Health Innovation

Welcome! This is a vibrant time in our college and university—unparalleled excellence is here! We seek new members of our college and that could be YOU, as student, faculty or staff. Yes—YOU!

We are the largest producer of baccalaureate educated nurses in the state! Nationally, we are the largest not for profit college of nursing—with approximately 17,000 on-line and in-person students. This works because we set the nation’s model for individualized instruction and coaching—all students, regardless of location or course delivery method, are in small groups with a seasoned faculty member to guide learning. You are an individual in a community of thousands, because we care about the quality of our education and insist that our faculty be master teachers.

Our master’s program recognizes the myriad roles of nursing leaders today and in the future. Advanced practice nurses are a must in our health care system and we offer a complete selection, including on-line programs using our well-developed master teacher-coaches and master practitioners. Check out our teaching and administration tracks, too.
