Dean’s Welcome

When you walk through the halls of UMKC’s School of Nursing and Health Studies and/or log in to our online learning management system courses, expect to find cutting-edge researchers, dedicated faculty and students prepping for leadership roles in nursing and the health industry. We are a team with a passion for nursing, health care and interprofessional practice and a mission to improve health outcomes for all.

Here are a few of the leading activities of the school:

  • Our school’s external grants portfolio is valued at almost $30 million.
  • Faculty leaders are assuming positions in the board room at organizations nationally.
  • Faculty, staff and student publications grow annually.
  • Our school manages three National Centers for workforce development in HIV prevention, Family Planning, and Treatment for Substance Use Disorders.
  • We are an urban serving school on an interprofessional health science campus and our students are educated with other health professionals to promote team work and quality improvement.
