Mission and Values

Mission Statement

The College of Nursing, founded in the principles of the Jesuit Catholic tradition, and honoring the Credo and Mission of the University, is committed to educating students to be innovative leaders in providing  healthcare for individuals and populations. 

Students will become creative scholars, reflective and compassionate practitioners, collaborative professionals, and global citizens through personal and professional formation anchored in social justice.  Faculty  create and share new knowledge to advance the discipline of nursing through teaching, service, research, and professional practice.

Our Values

The Creighton University College of Nursing personifies the teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola, who founded the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). We are committed to:

  • Finding God in All Things: Through events like the Call to Nursing and the Blessing of the Hands, nursing students are invited to see God’s beauty in every patient they encounter
  • Women and Men for and with Others: Our nursing students serve the local and global community by volunteering in places such as the Dominican Republic or the Porto Clinic within the Heart Ministry Center in Omaha, which serves the city’s poorest citizens
  • Faith that Does Justice: Through events such as Project Homeless Connect, our faculty, staff and students seek justice that is grounded in faith in God and the dignity of all people
  • Cura Personalis: This Latin phrase, which means “care for the person,” is embodied in all that we do in nursing by providing care for the mind, body and spirit
