We educate nurses who serve to build healthier communities and lead our profession through teaching, research and service. The College of Nursing seeks to be a national leader in the use of innovative nursing practices.
- Teaching: We seek to transform nursing education. USC is participating in a national study to determine whether simulation lab hours can replace up to half the clinical hour requirements for nursing students.
- Research: We seek to increase our research and scholarship productivity through interdisciplinary teams. Our core research areas focus on vulnerable populations and reducing individual health risks through health education. We also are seeking ways to improve the workplace for all in the health care industry.
- Practice: We seek to nurture a thriving practice environment for our faculty and students by creating a financially sustainable practice plan and by increasing student research and scholarship in the practice environment.
