Dean's Welcome


Welcome to the Auburn University School of Nursing web page! We’re happy to know of your interest in our programs. Contained herein, you’ll find information for prospective students and faculty, current students, alumni and friends.

Auburn University School of Nursing is a school on the move!  We are increasing the numbers of students and faculty dramatically.  We’re planning to complete construction on a new School of Nursing in the summer of 2017, which will more than triple our current space.  Newly designed and equipped simulation labs will offer students and faculty the most up to date learning environments available.  A new emphasis on interdisciplinary research and practice is creating exciting partnerships and preparing students for 21st century health care delivery.  New programs and concentrations are in development that will redefine our mission and our impact across the state, the region and the country.

Auburn is a special place, where students grow personally and professionally through their learning partnership with an excellent and dedicated faculty. In addition to the technical skills necessary to provide safe care, students here develop communication, critical thinking and decision making skills that will enable them to lead care teams in the future.

I invite you to take a closer look at us.  Whether you’re a prospective student or faculty member, we’d like to hear from you and to share with you our vision for the next decade.  It will be an exciting time in the Loveliest Village on the Plains!

Look through the information provided here. If you have the chance, come by and visit. If you have questions, or if we can be of help in some other way, please feel free to contact us.

I look forward to seeing you.

Sincerely,

Gregg E. Newschwander, PhD, RN
Dean and Barbara S. Witt Professor
