University of North Dakota (College of Nursing)




The College of Nursing has a special mission within the University of educating individuals for professional roles in nursing and nutrition. The College strives to enhance the health of people in the region by preparing leaders in nursing and nutrition through innovative, accessible programs, and significant faculty and student scholarship and service. In support of this mission, the College emphasizes an integration of research, teaching, practice and service to meet the needs of the populations of our region. Graduate and undergraduate students receive their education in a caring and culturally inclusive environment and are expected to develop critical thinking and intellectual inquiry skills. It is also the focus of the College to nurture the leadership and professional qualities among its students and faculty.

The College of Nursing includes the departments of Nursing and Nutrition & Dietetics, offering undergraduate degrees in nursing, community nutrition, and dietetics; a Master of Science degree with six nursing specializations (clinical nurse specialist in nursing therapeutics, family nurse practitioner, health administration, nurse anesthesia, nurse educator, and psychiatric and mental health nursing); and a PhD degree with a focus on research in the nursing care of diverse and vulnerable populations. There are two tracks in the undergraduate nursing major, one for basic nursing students and one for students who are already registered nurses with associate degrees or diplomas who are seeking the baccalaureate degree.

* Integration of research, teaching, practice and service to meet the needs of the populations of our region
* Development of critical thinking and intellectual inquiry
* Education in a caring and culturally inclusive environment

Mission Statement: The mission of the College of Nursing is to educate individuals for professional roles in nursing and nutrition.
