About the Nursing Department

Vision Statement

The Department of Nursing dynamically embraces and celebrates diversity, courage, and seamless learning in leading and mentoring communities of students, faculty and the profession to shape the future of health care.

The Department of Nursing provides opportunities for learning using a variety of traditional and technology mediated strategies. Courses may be taught using televideo conferencing technology, interactive and real-time electronic communications via computer for lecture, small-group and seminar discussions, self-paced and self-directed independent study, and Internet tools that support lifelong intellectual and professional development.

The Department of Nursing enjoys a collaborative relationship with the health care delivery community within its service area and beyond. Consequently there are many clinical opportunities available. Students are placed in a variety of community-based hospitals and health care agencies. Graduates of both the baccalaureate and master’s programs are well prepared for careers in a variety of health care settings and roles in the community.

Sonoma State University’s nursing programs are approved by the California State Board of Registered Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (formerly NLNAC), from which information about tuition, fees, and length of program may be obtained, either in writing or by telephone at:
