Meet the Dean

“Welcome back to a fresh semester. As we learn to live with Covid-19 we are committed to making learning and safety our focus. As we look ahead, we know that there will be ups and downs, but as nurses, this is our strong suit. We at SSON are confident that 2022 will bring great opportunities and possibly a few challenges in our new normal. Wishing all of you a great start to 2022.”

- Dean Sarah Thompson

Meet our Students

"I have loved every minute of my academic career within the Sinclair School of Nursing, even the most challenging moments. To me, the most amazing part about it is that Sinclair School of Nursing supported me every step of the way, both as a nursing student and for my life outside of my academic career. My peers and faculty members encouraged me to chase after new opportunities and experiences."

- Madison Herweck
