College of Nursing

Welcome to the College of Nursing

Welcome to the University of Toledo College of Nursing! Kelly Phillips

It is my privilege and honor to serve as Interim Dean for the College of Nursing. The College has been at the forefront of nursing education, leading the way in the development of Baccalaureate, Master’s, and Doctor of Nursing Practice programs. Due to our commitment to innovation, evidenced based clinical education, and scholarship, students are equipped to deliver high quality care.  Students will be prepared to dive into their careers with a strong understanding of reality in the nursing world.

There are three distinguishing characteristics of the College of Nursing: the philosophy that is based on a person-centered, self-care and holistic orientation to nursing; the commitment of the faculty to the clinical competence of its graduates; and the consortium model of inter-institutional cooperation upon which the College was developed.

We take pride in the history of the College and its outstanding leadership performed by faculty and alumni. Collectively it is our goal to build and strengthen partnerships with healthcare leaders and our community. Together we can advance our commitment to innovation, research, service, and the delivery of University quality care in Ohio and beyond.

On behalf of the College of Nursing, we invite you to discover the quality of our nursing education and the personalized attention you will receive from our advisors, faculty, and staff who support you on your journey to achieving your professional goals.
