The mission of the Purdue University School of Nursing is to serve the citizens of Indiana, the nation and the world. We do this through discovery that expands the realm of nursing knowledge as well as learning by disseminating and preserving knowledge that prepares beginning and advanced nursing graduates for professional licensure and leadership in their work settings. We practice engagement through the application of nursing science from local to global healthcare settings and advocacy through participation in healthcare legislation and policy that respect diverse client populations.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The School of Nursing seeks to eliminate systemic racism in healthcare by incorporating diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives throughout our learning, research and practice. More than 40 years ago, Clara E. Bell, Purdue’s first Black nursing faculty member, recognized the pervasiveness of systemic racism in healthcare. Today, we acknowledge the work still to be done, and we strive to carry on Dr. Bell’s legacy through our guiding principles.
