Since 2003, The RMU School of Nursing and Health Sciences (SNHS) has successfully advanced its programs to serve all degree levels and provided the community with qualified, competent healthcare professionals. The first students were admitted into the program in 2003, under the direction of founding Dean, Dr. Lynda Davidson.
The school has relationships with local and regional healthcare agencies, providing outstanding clinical opportunities and giving our students an edge in this competitive and ever-changing industry. The school maintains affiliations with the region's premiere healthcare providers. At least twice each year, RMU nursing students and faculty travel to Nicaragua to provide healthcare to residents in the barrios of Managua, in what has become one of the university’s signature study abroad and student engagement activities.
“The School of Nursing and Health Sciences has been one of the great success stories in RMU’s recent history. In a relatively short period of time the school has established itself as a leader in healthcare education and medical simulation, clinical research and community service on a global scale,” said former RMU President Gregory G. Dell’Omo.
The mission and vision of the school strongly support the overall mission and vision of RMU.
