Mission and Vision


The Department of Nursing, an integral component of the Donna and Allan Lansing School of Nursing and Clinical Sciences of Bellarmine University, prepares nurse leaders with a global perspective, capable of improving practice through sound nursing judgment and clinical scholarship. Consistent with Bellarmine’s Catholic values-centered education, graduates have the intellectual, moral, and ethical competencies to address health care disparities and improve health care outcomes. Intellectual curiosity and educational excellence are fostered through innovative teaching, high academic standards, and service to others. (Approved 2008; Reviewed 2017)
