The College of Nursing is pleased to share the Strategic Plan for 2014-2017 with alumni and friends. A copy of the strategic plan can be accessed on the College of Nursing's website by clicking here. The four strategic directions comprising the plan are the result of a day-long retreat with faculty, staff, and community partners. The four strategic directions for the College of Nursing are:

  • By Fall 2016, implement a suite of nursing education programs that equip nurses to meet the needs of a dynamic and rapidly evolving health care system.
  • By Fall 2017, implement a unique PhD in Nursing Program 
  • By Fall 2017, significantly increase the College of Nursing (CON) capacity for funded research and its scholarly application.
  • Be in a position by Fall 2016, to significantly engage in collaborative work within FSU and with our community partners to promote the goals of research, scholarship, interprofessionalism, and community service.

The College of Nursing will participate in the Women for FSU Backstage Pass Event on Saturday, March 21. Participants will enjoy a healing experience, and using a high-fidelity mannequin, discover more about heart disease and how it affects women; you'll also learn how to perform hands-only CPR. As you walk through Duxbury Hall, you may also find a treasure or two from the archives!
