Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Valdosta State University!

Whether you are a prospective student, a current student, or an alumnus, please take time to browse the website to learn about our remarkable programs and the achievements of students, faculty members and alumni. The overriding strength of our educational programs, research opportunities, and clinical services lies in the talented and committed faculty members and clinicians at the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

 The goal of the College is to heighten the level of preparation of our graduates making them more employable and marketable in the workforce and enhancing their ability to assimilate into their professional roles. This is accomplished through the creation of a positive, rich student-centered learning environment that is well grounded in didactic knowledge coupled with a strong clinical emphasis. All of the programs in the College share a common theme in giving back to the communities we serve. Our education focus, therefore, ensures that our students will receive the most up to date, contemporary program that is supported through clinical partners in our community as well as surrounding counties. The College is supported by the brand new Health Sciences Business Administration (HSBA) building that contains instructional classrooms, simulation and lab spaces, and collaborative learning spaces that are second to none. The simulation and lab spaces are outfitted with screening, diagnostic, and treatment equipment that help prepare students for clinical practice. The actualization of the Martin and Laura Lynn Miller Clinic will offer an onsite practice setting for our undergraduate and graduate students in the near future.

 It is truly an exciting time to be a Blazer at Valdosta State University!
