A message from the Senior Associate Dean

At the UK College of Nursing, we strive to ensure our undergraduate and graduate students learn the best and most up-to-date evidence-based clinical knowledge that will transform health care environments, whether that be at the hospital bedside, primary care office through research or in a professional administrative ranking.

I have seen an unmatched academic promise in our students since assuming the role of executive vice dean of academic affairs. The College, while great in size and knowledge, is abundant in student opportunities, such as outstanding clinical practice sites, teaching and research internships, student governance and education abroad opportunities, that cultivate smaller, more engaged communities where they can truly learn and flourish.

Here at the College of Nursing , our students learn from outstanding faculty and exceptional staff who are fully committed to the individual growth and wellbeing of every individual. We are home to expert nursing scholars, teachers, clinicians and researchers who have been recognized regionally, nationally and internationally for changing the landscape of education to assure that graduates can advance changes in complex health care delivery settings every day.

Though the curriculums are certainly rigorous, I have no doubt that our students will excel and thrive once accepted into a program. We invite you to engage with members of the College of Nursing community to get a true sense of what you can be a part of. Once you’re ready for the next step, we’ll be happy to help you!
