The Picture of Nursing Excellence

Katelyn Sheaff Husband, RN, '07 of Enfield, N.H., has a simple philosophy that guides her work as a critical care nurse in the Intermediate Special Care Unit at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Colby-Sawyer's Nursing Department integrates the liberal arts and sciences with the professional education required for nursing practice and to prepare students for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). In addition to building a foundation in the liberal arts, the program's core components ensure that our students develop the knowledge and skills essential to the nursing practice and the professional role of the nurse. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center considers Colby-Sawyer its own undergraduate nursing program, and DHMC nurses help educate our students in the laboratory and clinical aspects of their education.
