Director's Message

Nursing Program

Dr. Maija Anderson, Program Director

Greetings all:

Welcome to the Morgan State University, School of Community Health and Policy, Nursing Program. You are part of the special community formed here at Morgan State University, which has been designated by the state of Maryland as a Public Urban University. Within the MSU tradition, you will find respect for diversity of people and ideas, a common striving for excellence, and an unwavering dedication to service.

Within our nursing community faculty, staff, and students work together to create and sustain the best educational program. None of us can accomplish our educational vision and goals alone. You have a vital role:

• conscientiously studying,
• acting honestly and with integrity,
• respectfully questioning,
• thoughtfully reflecting,
• developing and refining critical thinking processes, and
• actively seeking assistance.

You are part of an amazing institution that is rapidly rising in all aspects of its work, but keeps its sights clearly on excellence in education. We continue to innovate by incorporating evidence-based best practices into our programs. For example, we are expanding our undergraduate simulation labs to enhance student success and facilitate achievement of desired student outcomes. Keep alert! There are more good things to come.

We are delighted you are here and are excited about the prospect of continuing to prepare the next generations of nurses, at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral level. On behalf of the entire nursing faculty and staff, we look forward to working with you as you matriculate through the program, once you've successfully completed the program, and as an alumnus giving back to those entering the program after you.
