Mission
started in 2007
"Our mission emerges from the mission of Marquette University and the College of Nursing, reflecting
commitment to excellence, faith, leadership and service. Moreover, our mission is guided by the Catholic
Church’s vision of health care as a continuation of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. Health care, guided by
professional codes of nursing, is based on respect for all persons and their cultures, concern for ethical
values, and a holistic approach. We strive to enhance opportunities for education, scholarship and research
for nursing faculty and students through using and studying best practices and innovative approaches to
nursing care and service delivery. "
