“Everyone, at some point in their life, is touched by a nurse. From the time you are born, to the time you die, a nurse cares for you. Our students provide the very best care based on evidence-based practices — they know they make a difference in people’s lives every day.”

We will continue to graduate nurses who are vital to health care in our fast-growing region, caring for patients in medically underserved areas from rural communities to bustling urban centers. Your support is vital for us to accomplish these goals.
