The College of Nursing's Annual Impact Report 2019-2020

Greetings from Montana State University's College of Nursing! 

The College of Nursing offers a bachelor’s of science in nursing, a master’s of science in nursing and a doctorate of nursing practice degree. Undergraduate students complete their upper level coursework at one of the college’s five campus sites in Billings, Bozeman, Great Falls, Kalispell or Missoula ensuring each student is able to complete more than 1,000 hours of clinical learning experiences in a variety of settings. All campuses offer the latest simulation technology to create scenarios students may encounter in practice. MSU boasts the only graduate nursing program in the state.   

In the past year, MSU committed to a new strategic plan called Choosing Promise. This annual impact report reviews our past year's accomplishments within the major focus areas of that plan.   

We want you to know about the relevant academic programs we have launched that transform learning and increase access to higher education.  I know you will be interested in stories about research we are conducting that improves lives.  And, we want share information about how we partner with communities in mutually beneficial ways.  

To our Friends, Alums, and Donors— we could not do this without you. Thank you for your support. We hope you enjoy this annual impact report. Your feedback is always welcome, so remember stay in touch.
