Message from the Dean of Nursing

The 2020 National Nursing Week theme was "Nurses a Voice to Lead-Nursing the World to Health" and its connection to the nursing impact we are experiencing in the global health care system is profound.  We are witnessing the compassion, strength and courage nurses share daily in their work with the most vulnerable.  It is clear, that UWindsor Faculty of Nursing has had the vision, leadership and commitment to build responsive nursing education, advanced practice and research programs that Canada and the world needs more than ever in communities of practice.;

Our vision for the future will build on a long and proud history of educating nurses for professional practice, beginning with our earliest roots in public health. Explore our website and learn about our faculty and staff, our graduates, and our plans for the future. Envision yourself here in student centered surroundings on your journey to becoming a nurse or pursuing graduate studies in your lifelong pursuit of knowledge as a health care professional. In Fall 2017, we welcomed the first students into our new PhD program.

Whether in emergencies, ICUs, long term care, acute care, co vid units, home care, public health, family clinics, supporting families during loss, contributing to emerging pandemic processes or research, UWindsor nursing alumni make a difference in the health care system and communities. UWindsor Nursing Alumni inspire others to believe in their inner strength while making a difference in the lives of others during health, illness and crises. 

Located in Windsor, Ontario at the southern-most region of Canada, our students have a unique opportunity to learn about health care on both sides of the international border that we share with Detroit, Michigan. Our relationship with the United States holds tremendous opportunity for student and faculty interaction. Currently, our Sigma Theta Tau Chapter (Tau Upsilon) is part of Region 10, which includes schools in Michigan and Ohio. Our undergraduate nursing program includes unique opportunities to enhance the student experience. We offer a senior-level one semester exchange, for qualified applicants, to Sweden or Australia. Other exciting opportunities include the University of Windsor's “Outstanding Scholar” program for undergraduate students interested in pursuing a mentorship relationship with nursing faculty engaged in research projects. All students can expect a supportive learning environment with exceptional faculty and staff devoted to their success.

We welcome you to explore Windsor!
