Dean's Welcome

Karen MillerA Message from the Dean

Welcome to the University of Kansas School of Nursing.

For more than 100 years, the KU School of Nursing has educated students for important roles in health care. I have the wonderful opportunity to work every day with talented faculty and staff of the School of Nursing.

Our graduates are clinicians, educators, researchers and leaders who play a vital role in advancing the nursing profession and the quality and safety of patient care across many practice settings.

As health care reform in this country continues to unfold, the demand for nurses and their influence has never been stronger. KU offers an innovative range of programs for exceptional students ready to apply new knowledge in service to the global community.

We are renowned for technology-based approaches that teach high-level nursing skills with compassionate communication, whether students are just beginning a career in nursing or seeking advanced degrees.

Our goal is excellence in nursing education and I am proud to represent the KU School of Nursing.
