We anticipate continued growth in the years ahead as we work to meet the state's growing need for nurses. 

The School of Nursing educates students for professional nursing practice locally and across the globe, and for productive citizenship and personal growth. The school offers a range of undergraduate and graduate nursing degrees, from the AAS in nursing science to the Doctor of Nursing Practice.
