The BSN program is an upper division program, with students entering as Juniors, and numbers a total enrollment of over 200 students. There are 11 MSN areas of concentration in a range of specialties from Acute Care to Nurse Midwifery. The doctoral program enrolled the first students in Fall, 1999, and the students are part of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
The vision of the School of Nursing is to be become an international leader in the advancement of nursing science, education, practice and policy. In 2015 we expect the School to be among the top 5 private schools of nursing in the world in terms of research funding and impact. To achieve this vision, the strategic plan of the school is targeted at supporting the efforts of the faculty and students.
