THE SCHOOL OF NURSING AND HEALTH PROFESSIONS The University of San Francisco's School of Nursing and Health Professions began in the 1940s as a cooperative effort with the Sisters of Mercy, so that registered nurses from nearby St. Mary's Hospital could earn their baccalaureate degrees. The four-year baccalaureate program was initiated in 1954 and accredited when the first class graduated in The School began offering a Master of Science in Nursing in the fall of In 2010, the School, taking seriously the Institute of Medicine Report on The Future of Nursing regarding the call for expanding opportunities for nurses to lead and diffuse collaboration (Recommendation #2) and preparing nurses to lead change (Recommendation #7), actively started on a trajectory to add health professions programing to its portfolio. As a result of a commitment to health professions education, then USF President Fr. Stephen A. Privett named a President s Commission on Health Professions Education that was charged to build on the stature of the USF nursing programs to make recommendations to advance excellence in health professions education by developing additional educational options at USF. The first non-nursing health profession program was the Master of Public Health (MPH). -4-

5 It was with this addition that the School changed its name to School of Nursing and Health Professions (SONHP). The MPH program graduated its first class in 2013 and received full Council of Education for Public Health (CEPH) accreditation as soon as it was eligible. Last fall, the doctoral degree in clinical psychology (PsyD) and integrated Master of Science in Behavioral Health (MSBH) programs, both with a focus on behavioral health and an emphasis on underserved populations, were started. In January 2014, the Health Informatics program was launched and fall, 2014, the new Master of Science in Healthcare Simulation was started. All of these health professions programs are part of the SONHP strategy to educate future health professionals with an interprofessional approach and move forward in creating a learning environment that prepares the graduate for the real world. As a result, the departments in the SONHP have nursing and non-nursing degree options clustered around contemporary ways to conceptualize health, health education, health care, and clinical practice. The School of Nursing and Health Professions follows the University of San Francisco s mission to provide a liberal arts education rooted in the Jesuit tradition of respect for diversity, service rooted in justice, and openness to global perspectives. In supporting this mission, students in the School of Nursing and Health Professions are part of one of the most exciting and diverse cities for progressive health care delivery in the nation. Graduates serve as knowledgeable, innovative, and experienced practitioners in health care. School Vision The School of Nursing and Health Professions at the University of San Francisco advances the mission of the university by preparing health professionals to address the determinants of health, promote policy and advocacy, and provide a moral compass to transform the delivery of health care in order to further equity and positively influence quality, access, and the promotion of population health in order to further equity and positively influence quality, delivery, and access. School Mission The mission of the School of Nursing and Health Professions is to advance nursing and health professions education within the context of the Jesuit tradition. The school uses dynamic and innovative approaches in undergraduate and graduate education to prepare professionals for current and future practice domains. The goal is to effectively link classroom, clinical, and field experiences with expectations for competence, compassion, and justice in health care, protection and promotion within the context of the highest academic standards.
