The Department of Nursing, an integral part of Wheeling Jesuit University, seeks to fulfill the Jesuit tradition of educational excellence and service to others. The mission of the Department of Nursing is to provide baccalaureate and graduate nursing education and service to the community. Through an integrated program of classroom and clinical practice, the graduate is prepared as a professional nurse to promote health/wellness in a variety of settings.

The goals of the Department of Nursing are:

  1. To provide the following educational programs based on professional nursing standards and guidelines.*
    1. A baccalaureate program that prepares graduates to enter professional nursing and function competently at the entry level.
    2. A baccalaureate program that is accessible to registered nurses in the community and builds upon their knowledge. (RN to BSN)
    3. A graduate program which enhances the graduate's skill and ability to contribute to nursing knowledge.
  2. To serve the campus community, the local community, and the nursing community.

*The baccalaureate program reflects the AACN Essentials of Baccalaureate Education and the standards of the West Virginia Nurse Practice Act. These standards were developed from those of the American Nurses Association. The graduate programs reflect the AACN Essentials of Master's Education. The Family Nurse Practitioner Program also follows the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner guidelines and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner's Standards of Practice.
