School of Nursing

Nursing can be described as both an art and a science; a heart and a mind. At its heart, lies a fundamental respect for human dignity and an intuition for a patient’s needs. This is supported by the mind, in the form of rigorous core learning and the discovery and application of evidence to care. Due to the vast range of specializations and complex skills in the nursing profession, each nurse will have specific strengths, passions and expertise.

The University of Kansas School of Nursing, on the campus of the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas plus a satellite location in Salina, Kansas, offers innovative interprofessional programs in every field of study. Students learn in an academic environment that ensures access to top-notch faculty, state-of-the-art technology and clinical experiences in diverse practice settings.

With your help we can continue to shape the future of nursing.
