MISSION

The mission of the MGA Nursing Programs is to provide quality evidence-based nursing education to a diverse student population. The purpose of the nursing programs is to prepare culturally sensitive graduates who are committed to provide safe and effective nursing care through health promotion and disease prevention, and are able to utilize clinical reasoning skills in the provision of care.

The mission of the Middle Georgia State University Master of Science in Nursing Program is to prepare advanced practice nurses to provide care to the entire adult to older adult age population and across the continuum of care, particularly those with acute care needs.
