School of Nursing

Greetings from The Chair

Welcome to the School of Nursing at Marshall University. We are the largest regional provider of nursing education located within a major university setting, and have access to resources which provide students with unique and varied experiences. In the pre-licensure BSN program we have campuses in Huntington and Point Pleasant, WV (MOVC). Additionally, we offer an online RN to BSN program for graduates of accredited diploma or Associate Degree Nursing programs. Our Family Nurse Practioner Master’s in Nursing Program is televised to Beckley, Bluefied, Point Pleasant, and South Charleston, WV. We also have online MSN programs in Nursing Administration and Nursing Education. We offer a collaborative Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practioner and Nurse Midwifery with Shenandoah University School of Nursing in Winchester, Virginia.

We have a long history of excellence on the national RN licensure examination (taken by our pre-licensure RN students) and the Family Nurse Practioner Certification Exam.  This is a direct result of the hard work on the part of our dedicated faculty who bring experience and passion into the educational process. In addition to traditional classroom methods of instruction, we also excel in the use of innovative technologies to enhance learning, including our dynamic online programs of study.

We exist in a challenging world for all health professions, especially the nursing profession. The need for nurses has never been greater and will only grow with the coming years. Many studies support the need for more nurses, especially those with Bachelor’s in Nursing (BSN) degrees and advanced degrees. It is the responsibility placed upon faculty to assure tomorrow’s nurses are prepared and ready to assume leadership roles and safeguard our most vulnerable populations: the ill. To this end, the faculty and I stand ready to support student achievement and education at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

I hope that you will consider joining us at Marshall University School of Nursing as you begin or expand your professional horizons.
