The Goals of the Graduate School of Nursing are to:

  1. Prepare advance practice nurses, leaders, educators and scientists to shape nursing and health care delivery through the integration of education research, practice and public service.
  2. Create a dynamic research environment to conduct multi-method research where findings are translated into practice.
  3. Integrate faculty and student practice to meet mutually prioritized health needs through innovative education, practice, public service and research.
