Welcome from School of Nursing Department Chair

Welcome to Salem State University's School of Nursing. As department chair, I am pleased to take this opportunity to tell you a little more about us and our programs.

Salem State has been in the business of educating professional nurses since 1970. Our alumni are practicing the art and science of caring throughout the United States and around the world. Many of our graduates achieve leadership positions, serve on civic boards, care for members of our armed services, and pursue advanced degrees in nursing.

Whether you are a high school graduate, practicing RN, licensed practical nurse, or college graduate looking for a career change, the nursing program at Salem State University has a program designed to meet your educational goals. 

The School of Nursing faculty and staff are committed to our students. We strongly encourage and support diversity and are excited to be preparing nurses to enter the health care delivery system to take on the many challenges that today’s health care environment brings, shaped in part by the Affordable Care Act and Institute of Medicine report on the Future of Nursing.

These are exciting times to be in nursing and I encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities that Salem State University has to offer. Our nursing programs will help you begin to build your foundation in professional nursing, or gain additional expertise to advance your nursing career.

On behalf of all the faculty and staff at the Salem State University School of Nursing, please accept a warm welcome and I wish you well on your educational journey.

Warm regards,

Charlene Campbell MSN, MEd, RN
Professor and Chairperson, School of Nursing
