Welcome to the Department of Nursing

As 21st century health care evolves and changes, the role of the registered nurse has taken on new importance. Nurses are the face of health care for millions of patients each year. They not only treat the sick, but serve as crucial links to health care institutions for family and loved ones, and they engage in the important work of keeping people healthy through preventive medicine.

Sage’s undergraduate and graduate Nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), and celebrated 100 years of excellence in nursing education in 2022.
