Dean of Nursing & Health Sciences Welcome
Welcome from the Office of the Dean. You have entered the virtual world of Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences. I hope you find that our programs in nursing, radiography and respiratory care are academically challenging and provide you with the knowledge to enter your chosen health career as an entry level professional.
Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences dates back to 1898 and is a private, not-for-profit institution. At Trinity we emphasize best practices, clinical reasoning, artful delivery of culturally competent health care, and lifelong learning. As you acquaint yourself with our college, you will note that our national certification/licensure pass rates and specific program outcomes provide clear evidence of the knowledge, skill, and ability of our graduates. This is directly attributed to the expertise of the Trinity College faculty who are not only experts at educating students, but who are also competent and knowledgeable practitioners in their chosen profession and specialty. A philosophy of student-centered education provides the perfect setting for developing students who can promote the health of individuals, families, and communities.
This is an exciting time for individuals in health care professions/careers. Health care reform has and will continue to present many opportunities and challenges for specific health care professionals and individuals working in the field.
As Dean, my goal is to preserve the rich traditions and values that make Trinity College unique while preparing health care practitioners for a dynamic and futuristic health care society. I am proud that our team of faculty, staff and students are making progress in achieving the strategic vision and goals of the College.
Please consider this an open invitation to call or visit with us to learn more about how we can help you meet your learning and career goals in nursing, radiography, or respiratory care.
