Associate Dean for Academics,
Christine M. Kennedy

Consistent with the UVA School of Nursing philosophy and strategic goals, our academic mission has a person-centered approach that starts with our admission process and continues throughout the academic experience. We anticipate that students will bring the motivation and we will provide the intellectual stimuli and academic rigor. The school is both small enough to be supportive of each individual student and yet big enough to offer a breath of intellectual perspectives and expertise amongst our diverse and talented faculty.  

As a student in any of our academic programs you will encounter faculty who are renowned clinical scholars, expert clinicians and investigators pushing nursing science into the next millennium. Innovative curricular offerings and opportunities to enhance your classwork with hands-on experience in clinical practices and research teams here on the Grounds, across the US and abroad await you.

Investigate our offerings, speak to our students and faculty, then come join us for your career-enhancing next step!
