Message from the Director

The relationship that exists between the faculty and the students helps and encourages students to grow both personally and professionally. Our curriculum offers a winning combination of clinical experience and classroom learning that enables our graduates to be consistently successful on the licensure examination and to transition effectively to the graduate nurse role. Graduates of our program are employed locally as well as nationwide. We are proud of their accomplishments and contributions to the profession of nursing.

I am pleased that you are considering a future in nursing since the profession needs individuals with the intelligence, integrity and dedication to meet the challenges and opportunities offered by a nursing career.
