Department of Nursing Mission Statement

At Luther College, we are inspired by our faithful roots to serve the greater good. We learn in collaboration with our health partners to transform ourselves and our communities with an emphasis on global health initiatives. We foster self-reflection and self-care as teachers and within our learners to promote a sense of wholeness, wellness, and resilience. By striving to live these values, we aspire to prepare nurses to lead and reform healthcare and wellness practices in complex evolving environments through academic and clinical excellence. 

This mission statement was created by the Nursing Department faculty with the intention of leveraging our values to achieve our vision. Building on our core values of leadership, reforming, social justice, and wellness and resilience, we work to achieve our vision:
