6 healthcare.kaplan.edu (Toll Free) Kaplan University History Kaplan University offers a different school of thought for higher education. We are a leader in higher education innovation with a heritage of providing career-focused programs for nontraditional adult students. Originally established as the American Institute of Commerce in 1937, today the University serves approximately 49,000 online and campus-based students throughout the country and around the world. The University, which has its main campus in Davenport, Iowa, and its headquarters in Chicago, offers more than 180 degrees and academic programs, including master s, bachelor s, and associate s degrees. School of Nursing Mission Kaplan University s nursing programs prepare students to enter and advance in the nursing profession at many levels of practice, from basic to advanced, and enable graduates to develop and apply the knowledge, skills, and values gained from their education to serve effectively in whatever nursing roles and settings they choose.* The School of Nursing promotes nursing education focused on providing excellent care, serving as leaders, and being accountable and responsive to the ever-changing global health care climate. School of Nursing Philosophy Our programs are designed to enable individuals to combine nursing knowledge and values with skills and strategies that foster career success at all levels of nursing practice. Our faculty believes that our school s nursing programs will empower individuals to successfully meet the challenges of the health care communities they serve. Our programs are based on the belief that students grow through the application of liberal arts and nursing knowledge based on scientific principles and the development and use of critical-thinking skills. Our faculty believes nursing education requires a foundation in the physical sciences, social sciences, liberal arts, and nursing theory and research, as well as experiential learning. Nursing education should facilitate students in becoming capable of affirming themselves as whole beings physical, mental, and social and prepare them to respect and care for other persons. This education focuses on the preparation for nurses at different levels of practice, helping to increase the availability of nursing care for the growing population requiring health care in and across all settings. The nursing programs are also designed to prepare students to advance nursing contributions in the communities they serve and to participate in the growth of the profession. This model for nursing education emphasizes a foundation of understanding and ongoing learning, and guides students to pursue additional studies in nursing. * Kaplan University cannot guarantee employment or career advancement.

While many of Kaplan University s degree programs are designed to prepare graduates to pursue continued graduate- or doctorate-level education, the University cannot guarantee that students will be granted admission to any graduate or doctoral programs. 6
