Nursing is a health profession whose central purpose is to care for individuals, families and communities. Nurses focus on psycho-social-spiritual-physical states during illness and health. Promotion of health and maintenance of wellness are goals of nursing. The outcome of nursing practice is enhanced quality of life for clients and families. At Marquette, the dynamic nature of nursing's impact on people's lives is emphasized.

When you're a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours.

The College of Nursing is housed in Emory T. Clark Hall on the west side of the Marquette campus. The 46,000-square-foot building includes office, classroom and laboratory space, including our new Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare Center for Clinical Simulation which provides a realistic health care environment where our students can strengthen essential clinical competencies, develop sound clinical reasoning and prepare for high-risk situations.

The college's location is directly across from the Helfaer Tennis and Recreation Center and within a very short walking distance of Raynor Memorial Libraries and Information Technology Services.
