Mission Statement

As part of the Lenoir-Rhyne University and College of Health Sciences, the graduate mission of the School of Nursing is to promote the development of nursing leaders who influence the quality of health care in a variety of emerging roles.

The faculty in the graduate programs of the School of Nursing fully ascribe to the educational philosophy of Lenoir-Rhyne University and College of Health Sciences by offering a course of professional study that builds upon the baccalaureate nursing practice for the Master of Science in Nursing programs, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing to DNP programs and the master’s nursing practice for the post-master’s DNP programs. The faculty ascribe to the belief that graduate education prepares nurses for leadership and advanced practice within complex, evolving systems.

The School of Nursing endeavors to foster in graduates a sense of global responsibility and accountability for developing leadership skills in order to engage in higher level practice. The development of nursing leaders with the ability to facilitate evidence based practice is best accomplished within the context of a Christian perspective.
