In accordance with Neumann University’s mission and vision statements, the purpose of the nursing programs is to enhance professional nursing practice and foster the provision of quality nursing education and care in the Franciscan tradition to persons of diverse populations, in varying circumstances and environments. Franciscan values and traditions are linked to a strong liberal arts and professional education. Graduates of the baccalaureate and master’s nursing programs will have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for competent, ethical, professional practice; for lifelong development of that practice; for advanced study in nursing; and for fulfillment of professional and societal responsibilities.
These programs are designed to prepare advanced practice nurses to assume roles as clinician scholars and/or pursue doctoral study. Intellectual excellence is demonstrated by using
advanced scientific knowledge from nursing and
other disciplines. Clinical competence is developed through the attainment of advanced practice skills. Community involvement is encouraged through professional and public service on the local, state, and national levels.
