Welcome from
Interim Dean
Mel Haberman


Welcome to the WSU College of Nursing. This college was founded in innovation, as the first intercollegiate nursing program in the nation. I’m proud to say I was a member of the first graduating class of what was then called the Intercollegiate Center for Nursing Education.

Today the WSU College of Nursing continues to lead. Our program was an early adopter of simulation as an educational tool. Nursing students engage in wide-ranging and important community service. And all health sciences students at WSU take part in interprofessional learning that prepares nursing, medicine and pharmacy students for careers in team-based health care.

We have graduated more than 10,000 individuals in 50 years. With BSN, RN-BSN, MN, DNP, and PhD degrees, these Coug Nurses represent the best of the nursing profession across the health care spectrum.

Whether you are looking to pursue or advance your nursing career, or if you are interested in joining our talented interdisciplinary faculty, the WSU College of Nursing is the destination of choice.
