Director’s Welcome to Nursing Students


You are about to embark on the journey toward becoming a professional nurse. The role of the nurse is more than a job. Nursing is a profession that embodies a contract with society to provide safe, evidence based, compassionate care to all patients, in all settings. While at PSU, you will learn the science and the art of delivering nursing care. We, the nursing department faculty, will guide you to acquire vast knowledge of the human condition while coaching you to listen to the patient story. We will join you in your journey, celebrating the success and supporting you during your challenges. We wish you well. Let the journey commence!
