Value Statement of Inclusion

The value statement of inclusion is part of the School of Nursing's larger Mission Statement. "Duquesne University School of Nursing creates an environment that values a culture of inclusion and openness for faculty, staff, students and community partners in pursuit of teaching/learning, scholarship, research and services, locally and globally."

As part of this value statement, the Duquesne University support equity through our equity access program that seeks to educate nurses and other healthcare providers about some of the specialized knowledge and skills we need to provide high quality care for individuals with disabilities.
