EMU Concepts of Nursing

Eastern Mennonite’s nursing program is highly regarded for its emphasis on caring relationships motivated by faith-based service to others. Future nurses receive one-on-one mentoring from professors who are experts in their field, and students learn to be adaptable and work with confidence in any setting. Our nursing model incorporates core fundamental concepts, values and beliefs about the practice of nursing.
