The college has a long-standing tradition of producing nursing leaders for practice, education and research. As a leader in nursing education, research and practice innovations, the UI College of Nursing has received national recognition by U.S. News & World Report, ranking seven of its graduate programs among the best in the nation (in comparison to all public and private schools).
As a community of nurse scholars, we believe that an expert faculty with varied areas of expertise is required to carry out the educational mission of the College. Faculty are committed to designing and implementing curricula in which students develop critical thinking, decision-making skills, clinical judgment, cultural sensitivity, and professional nursing values in an increasingly complex health care system. The college is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in achieving our education, research, service, and practice missions, as demonstrated through our Pillars of Diversity.
