About diversity

The School of Nursing prepares nurses to be culturally competent in accord with the core values of the profession. Nursing values diversity in all forms, including national origin, race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or veteran status; and seeks to recruit, retain and graduate a diverse student population. The School of Nursing advances excellence in student learning, collaborative clinical service delivery, community service, and the scholarship of practice, integration, application, and discovery.
