OUR MISSION Building on liberal education competencies, our mission is to prepare graduates who are able to CCNEdemonstrate  competence in leadership, communication, critical thinking, and cultural sensitivity. Our graduates are prepared to provide evidenced based care promoting professionalism and ethical behavior for persons in a multitude of health care settings. Established in 1933 as the first baccalaureate program in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Spalding remains a leader in assuring excellence in nursing practice through innovation in nursing education.  Spalding students prepare alongside a passionate, dedicated faculty in a state of the art facility featuring one of the most intensive lab simulation programs in the region. 

I wish to send a very warm “welcome” to all of our students as we prepare for the 2014-’15 academic year. It is my pleasure to work with the students, faculty and staff of the Kosair Charities College of Health & Natural Sciences. We collectively strive to provide outstanding classroom educational foundation and unparalleled community and health care clinical experiences. If you are in search of a meaningful career which makes a difference in peoples’ lives, there is no more vibrant a place than Spalding University.
