Welcome to McMaster University School of Nursing website.
Welcome to the School of Nursing at McMaster. It is my privilege and
honor to serve as Interim Associate Dean, Health Sciences and Director
of the School of Nursing (2017 – 2018). At McMaster, we are committed to
the education of highly skilled professional nurses who are at the
heart of health care— from the hospital bedside to the community. Our
vision is to advance health and well-being through excellence in
nursing. Our key core values centre on respect, creativity, and caring.
Nurses are advocates for patients and families through health promotion,
quality care delivery, and innovative and impactful research. As a
community, we are also engaged in local, national, and international
nursing leadership. Nurses comprise the largest single regulated health
profession in Ontario, achieving sustained excellence as our healthcare
system continues to evolve. Our school has a rich history of driving
healthcare since its inception in 1946. Alongside our hospital,
community, and educational partners, we continue to shape healthcare by
ensuring excellence in our students. Our School’s faculty and staff are
the key drivers of our student success. I look forward to working with
all students, faculty, and our leadership team in the coming year.
Together, we invite you to explore and engage in all that our School of
Nursing has to offer.
Dr. Sandra L. Carroll, Associate Dean, Health Sciences & Director, School of Nursing
