As part of an initiative of excellence in education President David Alexander of Northwest Nazarene University has established the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, effective July 1, 2009, which will consist of the nursing and kinesiology departments.

In addition, beginning this fall, the School of Nursing and Health Sciences will offer a master’s degree program, the Master of Science in Nursing. Northwest Nazarene University’s nursing program is accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education.

Northwest Nazarene University has appointed Dr. Pat Kissell as dean of the new School of Nursing and Health Sciences. She joined the NNU faculty in 2003 as Chair of the Department of Nursing. Dr. Pat Kissell received her RN through the Presbyterian University Hospital School of Nursing in Pittsburgh, and then her BSN and MNEd from the University of Pittsburgh. Her PhD from New York University is in Biophysical Pathology.

Enhancements for nursing students this next fall will include the use of new nursing laboratories with two clinical 8-bed suites and a simulation suite. This fall, the newly built Thomas Family Health and Science Center will enhance student studies with new laboratories for microbiology, anatomy & physiology, genetics/biochemistry, cadaver dissection facilities, cell culture, and a molecular research laboratory.
