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

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

Dr. Pat Kissell had been appointed the dean of the new school. Kissell joined NNU’s faculty in 2003 as chair of the Department of Nursing. She earned her RN at the Presbyterian University Hospital School of Nursing in Pittsburgh, and then a BSN and MNEd from the University of Pittsburgh. Her PhD from New York University is in biophysical pathology.

Fall 2009 enhancements for nursing students include the use of new nursing laboratories with two clinical 8-bed suites and a simulation suite. The newly built Thomas Family Health & Science Center also has laboratories for microbiology, anatomy & physiology, genetics/biochemistry, cadaver dissection facilities, cell culture, and a molecular research laboratory.

For further information, please contact Dr. Barbara Lester at 208.467.8653.
