The School of Health Professions and Nursing is dedicated to providing students with the opportunity to establish professional competence for careers that address the health and social needs of society. We prepare individuals for leadership positions by creating a solid intellectual foundation and practical expertise. The academic environment for undergraduate and graduate students integrates theory with experiential learning. Some programs require students to complete internships at regional community and health care facilities. This synthesis of didactic and clinical experience endows students with the educational foundation for lifelong learning, professional practice, research, and service to their communities and the world.
