Director’s Welcome to nursing students

Kathleen Patenaude

Welcome to the Department of Nursing at Plymouth State University. You have made an excellent decision to join a profession that provides tremendous opportunities.  As a nurse, you are choosing to spend your life helping others by using skills that blend scientific knowledge with compassion and caring. There are few professions that offer such a rewarding combination of high tech and high touch.

The nursing faculty at Plymouth State University are committed to educating and preparing future nursing leaders for practice and service to meet the growing health care demands of the community and the world.

On behalf of the Department of Nursing faculty and staff, I wish you success as you pursue your nursing education.  Personally, I very much look forward to meeting you.
