Caring is a Science, and we study it.
Caring is an Art, and we practice.
Caring is a Way of Being, and we live it.

A message from Dean Smith

“In 2011 we celebrated our 30th Anniversary, and in March of that year I was selected as the second dean of this very special College. We are known for our dedication to caring in nursing: expanding the science, studying its meaning, practicing the art and living it day-to-day. Our strong values give us identity, direction and purpose. As we’ve grown, we’ve distinguished ourselves through our educational programs, research, practice and service missions.”

— Dr. Marlaine Smith
