The mission of Rutgers School of Nursing reflects the beliefs of the faculty and gives direction to the curricula of the baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral nursing degree programs as well as to the Centers of Excellence in research and evidence-based practice. The school's mission and goals are congruent with the university's tripartite mission of education, research, and service. The Rutgers School of Nursing's mission is to educate students; advance the discipline of nursing through research, scholarship, and practice; provide service to meet the health care needs in collaboration with the diverse populations; and demonstrate change-oriented leadership at the local, state, national, and international levels. The faculty have identified key goals in education, research, service, and practice that guide baccalaureate education for those entering the profession of nursing and for those registered nurses wishing to obtain a baccalaureate degree, as well as graduate education at the master's and doctoral levels.
