Welcome to Research College of Nursing!

Building on over a century of academic excellence and community commitment, our college continues to evolve to meet the ever-growing complexities of contemporary healthcare. Whether educating students to enter nursing practice or advance their career through graduate education, we co-create professional nurses who are highly skilled clinicians and knowledge workers. For us, nursing practice includes serving the community and promoting health equity. RCoN nurses know that their obligation goes beyond their patients and includes the health and well-being of the communities in which they live and work.

Located amid Research Medical Center, our college provides unparalleled access to this world-class facility with abundant learning and mentoring opportunities for all students. Our student experience is truly unique in that students are immersed in the day-to-day of one of the region’s leading acute-care hospitals.

Our faculty and staff colleagues are strongly committed to student academic success. RCoN students are at the center of everything we do. What’s more, we commit to a learning environment of respect and civility where differences are celebrated and acknowledged as adding to the richness of our college community.

It is my honor to serve as the President of Research College of Nursing. The future is indeed bright!
