I’m extremely proud of the faculty, staff and students as we continue a legacy of excellence established over 114 years ago.”
PSON is dedicated to providing nursing education at the associate and baccalaureate levels. The baccalaureate program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the associate degree program by the Accreditation Commission on Education in Nursing (ACEN). The school’s mission is to become a leader in improving human health through initiatives in teaching, multidisciplinary scholarship, and service efforts that enhance healthcare delivery for the local and global community.
