Welcome Note from the Dean
Created in partnership with the University of Ulster, the Saad College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences embraces innovation and utilizes the very latest methods of teaching, including simulated ward environments and purpose-built laboratories.
Being a nursing student is both an academic challenge as well as an incredible honor. The experiences our students have will enrich their lives in ways they cannot imagine.
It is our pledge to prepare skilled and compassionate nursing leaders who have the courage, conviction and commitment to provide and create better systems of patient-centered care.
Students and faculty within our school focus on an issue that touches all of our lives; health.
We invite you to discover the quality of our nursing education and the personalized attention you will receive from our advisors, faculty and staff who support you on your journey to achieving your professional goals.
