College of Nursing and Health Professions


The College of Nursing and Health Professions prepares professionals who will use their roles to transform today’s health and health care systems in collaborative teams. As a nurse, physician assistant, public health expert, health care leader, nurse educator, researcher, advance nurse provider, health scientist or occupational therapist, you can count on the following things: thinking critically, performing exemplarily, leading unswervingly, and serving unselfishly as you work with others to change the world. With the Valpo preparation you will immediately be distinguished amongst your peers as being second to none in all arenas of health and health care.


We are seeking reaccreditation of the baccalaureate, master, and doctoral nursing programs. We invite you to submit, in writing, comments concerning the program’s qualifications for accreditation status. Third-party comments will be received by CCNE until March 11, 2020.

“One thing that really separates Valpo is how all the professors are really willing to work with each student’s schedule. Being in the College of Nursing and Health Professions didn’t stop me from getting involved at Valpo.”

Transformative Experience as a Public Health Major

Originally from Wilmington, Ohio, Ty Snarr ’20 is a member of the inaugural cohort of students pursuing their bachelor’s in public health at Valpo. But public health wasn’t always the plan for Ty, who anticipated his fascination with populations and geography combined with his interest in health care would find him on the pre-med track as an undergraduate.
