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.
In 2020 we will celebrate the world’s 22 million nurses and 2 million midwives, who make up half of the global health workforce, as part of the year-long recognition and celebration of the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.
It is the mission of The University of Kansas School of Nursing to “Educate diverse students for evolving roles as clinicians, educators, researchers, and leaders; discover and integrate new knowledge for nursing and healthcare practice; and apply expertise in service to the global community.
With your help we can continue to shape the future of nursing.
