We strive to be a dynamic leader in the art and science of nursing, educating ethically and culturally-sensitive nursing students to alleviate suffering and to promote, preserve, and restore dignity for all patients. The School of Nursing creates and practices innovative models of instruction, generates cutting edge research and creative activities, and advocates for health care needs in diverse local, regional, and global communities.
When the spring semester began in late January, it seemed as if the stars had finally aligned for Cal State San Marcos to send its nursing students back into the community for their badly needed clinical rotations.
Some were scheduled to be stationed in the Valley Center-Pauma Unified School District, providing health screenings and education to children of all ages. Others were bound for a food pantry in Fallbrook. Still others were slotted to go to Rachel’s Women’s Center, a homeless shelter in downtown San Diego.
Two Cal State San Marcos faculty members in the School of Nursing have received a grant of $1.33 million to help further build the pipeline of psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners in California.
Dr. Catherine Baker and Dr. Nancy Romig received the five-year grant from the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), which in total awarded $17.3 million to seven programs.
