Fulfill one of society’s greatest needs

Nurses assess health problems, develop plans for patient care and educate patients on disease prevention. With an expected shortfall of 1 million nurses by 2020 and nurses absorbing more responsibilities, career opportunities have never been greater. Nurses are in demand not only in acute care and primary care settings, but also in new and growing fields, such as nursing informatics, which involves using patient data to improve the quality of care.

You’ll experience diverse health care settings working with over 300 clinical affiliates in hospitals, clinics, schools, private practices and home health agencies. Through our study abroad trips designed for graduate and undergraduate students, you’ll work with other health disciplines to increase your awareness of global health issues.

Our program prepares you to be an integral member of the interprofessional health care team and a transformational leader in the field. You’ll graduate with the knowledge, skills and attitude to start your career, or to advance your education with a master’s or doctor of nursing practice degree.
