The mission of the SON is to provide a program that educates its graduates to address the diagnosis and treatment of human responses to health states. It does this through the integration of technology into nursing practice, with the goal of improving the health of society.

The SON builds on these concepts to help graduates, develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to provide safe, effective, high quality client-centered care as members of a complex, continuously evolving health care system.
