MSN - Nurse Leader - Letter from the Dean

Congratulations on continuing the life-long learning journey and welcome to the West Coast University website!

When someone enters nursing, they know licensure is not enough. The opportunities nurses have to impact lives of individuals, families, and communities, necessitates the continuous acquisition of knowledge and skills. With the advent of technology, returning to school is possible—the opportunity to learn 24/7 is a gift to the working professional with competing obligations of work, family, community service, and now school. West Coast University will provide a professionally accredited curriculum and exceptional support for the educational journey.

As you explore organizational systems, view change from a quality and safety perspective, integrate scholarship into practice, enhance the delivery of care with technology, develop health advocacy skills, improve patient and population outcomes as a member of the interdisciplinary team, I believe you will experience transformative thinking, and an evolutionary change in your professional nursing practice. While the majority of time is spent engaging other professional nurses in the online classroom—there will be an opportunity to demonstrate the value and transforming potential of the nursing profession through a practice experience unlike any previous clinical experience—a requirement of professional accreditation, and an exciting opportunity to make a difference in your community.

As you consider one of the West Coast University online programs, do not hesitate to reach out to a member of the admissions team, or to me—we believe WCU has what you are looking for. Thank you for continuing the educational journey, and for being a vital contributor to healthcare.
