Nursing education with an urban impact

The College of Nursing at Wayne State University provides opportunities for talented, highly motivated students to pursue a nursing degree with an emphasis on preparing a diverse workforce committed to providing and advancing health care. Rooted in Detroit, the college is the optimal learning laboratory for urban health issues. Research begins with a local focus, as nursing students and faculty address health disparities in the city. This work expands knowledge in similar urban areas, positioning the College of Nursing to be a leader in urban health care.

Featured initiative: The Student Commons

The college is raising funds for its recently completed informal learning space to further enhance student success. Learn more about The Student Commons or donate online today.
