Mission of the School

The mission of the Cochran School of Nursing is to educate adult learners in the art and science of nursing. This two year program grants an Associate in Applied Science degree (A.A.S.) with a major in nursing, and prepares graduates for the NCLEX-RN exam, leading to licensure as a Registered Professional nurse.

The faculty is committed to providing an educational foundation that identifies the healthcare needs of the diverse communities in which the graduates will serve. The faculty integrates current concepts from nursing education, nursing research, health care delivery and medicine, while using state-of-the-art technology to help students achieve program outcomes.

Liberal arts and sciences serve as the foundation for nursing courses as students integrate knowledge to become competent nurses in a complex health care system.

The Cochran School of Nursing values concepts of caring, safety, ethical integrity, respect for all individuals, quality and commitment to lifelong professional learning.
