Mission and History of the College of Nursing

The mission of Rutgers College of Nursing reflects the beliefs of the faculty and gives direction to the curricula of the baccalaureate, the master's, and the doctoral nursing programs, as well as to the continuing education and Educational Opportunity Fund programs. The college's mission and goals are congruent with the university's tripartite mission of education, research, and service. The College of Nursing's mission is to educate students, advance the discipline of nursing through research and scholarship, provide service responsive to the health care needs of multicultural populations, and demonstrate local, national, and international leadership in informing health care outcomes.

The primary purposes of the College of Nursing are to provide baccalaureate education for those entering the profession of nursing and for those registered nurses wishing to obtain a baccalaureate degree; and to provide graduate education at the master's and doctoral levels.
