The nursing program at Saint Martin’s University is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of its students and others through the core values of faith, reason, service and community. It empowers its students to pursue lifelong learning, accomplishment and fulfillment as nurses and human persons.
"The RN-to-BSN program is transformational. Sometimes I look back and don't even recognize myself. In nursing school, they teach you how to save a patient's life. This program teaches you how to change the world."
Christina Kressin '13, RN-to-BSN graduate
Dr. Diane Hamilton, Assistant Professor of Nursing, presented a poster titled Stress Manifestations in Patients and Families after Critical Illness at the 2018 Eleventh National Doctors of Nursing Practice Conference in Palm Springs, California in September 2018.
