The field of nursing has changed immeasurably since Florence Nightingale’s leadership turned caring for the wounded and sick into a profession. Likewise, the education of nurses has changed dramatically. We are focusing on preparing students for a rapidly changing world of health care at a point of time when young candidates are entering into nursing profession. Our goal is to establish a caring, diverse academic learning environment that provides one of the world’s highest standards of nursing education. FH College of Nursing curriculum prepares future nurses at the baccalaureate level in an exciting environment that not only includes classroom and clinical laboratory learning experiences on campus, but also opportunities to care for patients at numerous clinical sites.

These sites are located in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and community agencies. Additionally, students are prepared for leadership roles in all health care institutions. Other key aspects of the learning that take place in FHCN are the close relationship to clinical sites that offer internship programs for students during the summer months, the opportunity to interact with national nursing leaders who are present in the college at key points in time, and the study abroad programs which add to the value of a nursing education. The faculty believes that the FHCN offers a tremendous opportunity for graduate nursing education in a unique academic and professional environment. We invite you to study nursing with us at FHCN.
