Founded in 1945, the college is dedicated to providing the highest quality education to a diverse population of students through our BSN, MSN, PhD, DNP and graduate certificate programs. Graduates from our college are prepared to be nurse leaders in research, education and practice.

Throughout 2021, we will extend the celebrations for the 75th +1 anniversary of the founding of the College of Nursing. Historically, the College of Nursing has been a leader in nursing education, knowledge generation and contemporary nursing practice. You are invited to share your College of Nursing story by submitting pictures and recollections about your experiences at nursing.wayne.edu/75/share. Mark your calendars now to "come home" and celebrate this milestone with us on September 24, 2021!
