Students in the Maureen Murphy Wilkens School of Nursing & Clinical Sciences develop their personal philosophies to inform and enhance a compassionate, responsible nursing practice that appreciates the diversity of human experiences.

Through intellectual curiosity and academic excellence, students emerge as well-rounded, in-demand nursing professionals who think critically, communicate effectively and better understand the cultural, social, economic and political factors that affect patient beliefs and behaviors.

Highly experienced faculty and practitioners renowned in their respective specialties teach and mentor in the School’s graduate programs in nursing education and nursing management. Emmanuel’s location in the Longwood Medical and Academic Area of Boston—Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are just a few of the College’s neighbors—is the ideal backdrop to foster connections and gain real-world experience.
