The Dean

MichaelPrewittOn behalf of our faculty, staff, and students I want to thank you for your interest in our health professions and nursing programs. Our mission is to prepare students and health care professionals to function as highly competent, collaborative, and socially responsible health care professionals in a dynamic health care environment. To fulfill this mission our outstanding faculty provide student-centered education and clinical educational experiences, promote and provide support for continued professional development of practicing health care professionals, conduct research that relates to critical health care issues and populations, and provide services throughout the tri-state region and rural communities of southern West Virginia.

The College of Health Professions has a rich history in health professions education and has graduated thousands of health care professionals who continue to provide high quality clinical care, professional education, and research throughout the tri-state region and the nation. Our future continues to be bright as we broaden the scope of our programs in response to the health care reform and the ever pressing community and national workforce demands.

We hope you share our excitement as you browse through our pages and see what we have to offer you.
