Through study and mastery of current and emerging knowledge, skill and practice, Western Michigan University's Bronson School of Nursing students are positioned to be highly effective and competitive in the nursing field. Inter-professional activities with other College of Health and Human Services disciplines are available and encouraged, and the facilities include state-of-the-art classrooms and labs.

Both the undergraduate and graduate degrees offered are fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, and the school is one of only a few to receive endorsement from the American Holistic Nursing Certification Corporation. Through participation in the Upsilon Epsilon Chapter of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, students experience leadership and scholarship in practice, education and research to enhance the health of all people.
