Executive Director's Staff

Welcome to nursing at Indiana State University!

The nursing program has been part of the University since 1963. Since that time we have grown into three nursing departments with over 1200 undergraduate and graduate students. 

As we emphasize in our philosophy, the nursing faculty is committed to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service.  We view the educational process as transformational resulting in the individual becoming a competent, caring, nursing professional. 

However, professional nurses in today’s world need to be more, they need to be advocates, leaders, and coordinators of interprofessional health care.  Nurses also need to be scientists and change agents to improve health care for everyone. 

At Indiana State, we are here to support you from the baccalaureate degree to the Doctor of Nursing Practice.  We also realize that learning is life-long and strive to provide high quality continuing nursing education locally and online. 

We are very excited that you will be joining us and will be part of what makes nursing great at Indiana State University.
