Message from the Dean

­Fall 2013 –

Welcome to the School of Nursing, Health and Exercise Science.  As the Interim Dean for the past three years, I am extremely proud of the accomplishments of our students, faculty, staff and alumni.  Please review our website to see the many accomplishments and activities in our School and our well designed courses of study.

This year one of my goals is to re-energize the Alumni Association for our School and host some events where alumni can re-connect with the school, the faculty and former classmates.  Many of the extra things available to our students are made possible by gifts from alumni and other supporters whom we gratefully acknowledge for helping us deliver high quality academic programs.  As I am sure you know, our majors depend on many “hands on”, deeply engaged learning experiences.

Our graduates are sought after by employers and our alumni are certainly impacting health care locally and nationally.  Our high quality and challenging, Nursing, Health and Exercise Science, and teaching programs provide our exceptional undergraduate and graduate students a solid foundation for graduate school or employment.

We are committed to improving health and health care and passionate about providing the best education possible!

“Purpose is the reason for the journey …. Passion is the fire that lights the way.”

If you need more information about the School of Nursing, Health and Exercise Science or have any questions or comments about our programs, please use our contact form, e-mail us at or call (609) 771-2591.

We look forward to hearing from you.
