School of Nursing Mission

In accordance with the mission statement of Rasmussen College, the School of Nursing mission is to cultivate a learning environment that develops a skill set for critical thinking and to educate students in the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to provide safe and competent nursing care in the communities we serve. Read Our Philosophy »

The School of Nursing philosophy is anchored in the belief that nursing education should prepare students to function safely and effectively in the generalist role. We believe that nursing education should provide students an opportunity to progress within a laddered curriculum in order to enhance the profession of nursing and to serve as a foundation for life-long learning. Nurses should be prepared to provide ethical, holistic and compassionate care to diverse populations in a variety of settings. We feel that by incorporating into our curriculum the standards set forth by our governing bodies, the evidence-based research provided by our colleagues, and the values and criteria promoted by our national nursing organizations, our goal can best be accomplished.
