Nurses save and improve lives as front line members of the health care delivery team. Nurses then provide care and, if needed, alert other health care professionals to assist. One of the most important roles of the nurse is to be a patient advocate.
The USU Nursing Program prepares students to provide and improve healthcare in a challenging and diverse practice environment. Science courses, such as anatomy and physiology, provide a foundation on which nurse educators guide student learning to acquire the core knowledge, skills, and attitudes required of modern nurses.
