Strategic Plan 2017-2020

Leading the Pursuit of Nursing Excellence

The University of Calgary's Faculty of Nursing fosters an environment of leadership, engagement and inquiry that underpins all our activities: teaching, learning, research and community service.

Leading the pursuit of excellence means that we have a clear sense of a preferred future for nursing. We focus on goals and activities with passion and resolve, determined to make a difference. We are ambitious, creative, inspired by those we serve, impatient for change and informed by evidence.
