The School of Nursing prides itself on preparing clinically competent nurses who are prepared to successfully complete the RN National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). Nursing students are expected to take their education seriously and to actively participate in class meetings, clinical and laboratory assignments, discussion groups, and tutoring sessions. Self-learning is not only highly encouraged, but is an expectation of the nursing program here at Endicott College. The graduate of the baccalaureate program is prepared as a generalist to provide care to individuals, families and community groups, arriving at clinical judgments to promote and maintain health.

The mission of the
School of Nursing reflects that of the College, to prepare graduates to practice in a complex and ever-changing health care environment with a solid base in liberal education. Curriculum integration of global healthcare issues and cultural concepts will insure that students can participate in society as educated, culturally competent, and socially responsible individuals who respect others and the environment and who are accountable to protect and promote the well-being of those assigned to their care. Inherent in this mission is that the student will remain a self-learner throughout the lifespan, committed to both personal and professional development. Preparation for practice is based on evidence-based theoretical knowledge and structured, supervised clinical instruction. The educational process incorporates the student as an active participant in the care of the patient with an emphasis on patient -centeredness, quality and safety. Through the use of innovative teaching approaches and technology, a collaborative and interactive classroom environment is created in which students are encouraged to become self-learners, responsible for the depth and breadth of their acquired knowledge. The professional standards of nursing will provide the foundation for the development of critical thinking skills, leadership skills, ethical reasoning, and therapeutic communication skills. Endicott College School of Nursing is dedicated to educating the nurse of the future with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide patient-centered, quality and safe care in a diverse healthcare environment.
The nursing program at Endicott College is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite850, Atlanta Georgia, 30326
