Dear Prospective and Current Students, Alumni, and Friends of the FAMU School of Nursing,
Florida A&M University is proud of its glorious past and long tradition of excellence in nursing education. Our faculty and staff have a long history of valuing educational access, fostering close student-faculty relationships, and achieving the highest standards of professional excellence. Our location in the state's capital provides us multiple opportunities to involve faculty and students in governmental issues that affect nursing health policy issues.
We salute those whose efforts have positioned us for this moment in time; moving us toward our vision of becoming a local, national, and global leader, providing innovative inter-professional collaboration to advance nursing education, research, and scholarship. Our students are highly invested in using all types of technology in their daily lives. More importantly, they will be faced with multiple, complex technologies throughout their nursing careers, particularly if working in the hospital or high-tech outpatient settings. Today’s students are frequently referred to as “digital natives” and they relish the opportunity to work with our faculty in a safe, protected environment.
As dean, I’m passionate about ensuring that our faculty and students remain successful and that our School remains dynamic, strong, and held in the very highest regard. The healthcare system is facing new challenges each day, nurses will play a vital role in reshaping the delivery of health care and maintaining healthcare quality. The contributions we make as educators, clinicians, and researchers are essential to transforming our health care system to better meet the needs of our diverse patient population, globally. FAMU School fo Nursing features state of the art classrooms, simulation laboratories, and most importantly, dedicated and skilled faculty and staff. I invite you to join our FAMU community and begin or advance your professional nursing career.
