Dean's Welcome

Dean NewschwanderWelcome to the Auburn University School of Nursing web page! We’re happy to know of your interest in our programs. Contained herein, you’ll find information for prospective students, current students, alumni and friends.

This is an exciting, challenging time in health care. Despite our ready access to the best technology in the world, issues of cost, quality, and safety are constantly in the forefront. As practitioners of the future, your role will not only be to function within the system, but also to work to transform it in ways that assure that those who need care get it, in the most efficient, effective and affordable way possible.

Auburn is a special place, where students grow personally and professionally through their learning partnership with an excellent and dedicated faculty. In addition to the technical skills necessary to provide safe care, students here develop communication, critical thinking and decision making skills that will enable them to lead care teams in the future.

Look through the information provided here. If you have the chance, come by and visit. If you have questions, or if we can be of help in some other way, please feel free to contact us.

I look forward to seeing you.


Gregg E. Newschwander, PhD, RN
Dean and Barbara S. Witt Professor
