Dear Admitted Students,
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to The University of Jordan School of Nursing (JU-SON). Established in 1972, our school has been a center of excellence that is committed to the advancement of nursing education, research, and community service.
At the JU-SON, we value and honor diverse experiences and perspectives, strive to create welcoming and respectful learning environments, and promote access, opportunity and justice for all of our students. We focus on helping our students sharpen their talents and realize their potential contributions to health care through strong advisement and mentoring. Our rigorous curricula can turn our students into leaders, and our faculty ‘walk the talk’. We use innovative pedagogies to actively engage students in their own learning and professional development. These benefits, and many more, are why the JU-SON is ranked as the leading nursing school in the nation, and within the 151-200 best nursing schools category globally.
At the JU-SON, we are committed to the growth and development of our school to meet the changing needs of nursing education. With many of our undergraduate and graduate programs, we educate the next generation of transformational leaders in nursing. Our students and faculty seek to enhance the quality of life for people of all cultures, economic levels and geographic locations.
Even throughout the many challenges of 2020, the JU-SON has thrived and continued to make a difference to its faculty and students. We maintained the momentum of collective emergency action to drive education into a new and better normal, and we are now looking forward to the ways in which our teaching and learning will expand through state-of-the-art technology.
As we continue to fight this pandemic, we remain hopeful for the way in which nurses will continue to lead the way. We dedicated ourselves to improve the health care of our society and that’s what makes our profession the most trusted.
Today, there is much for which we can be grateful and much to look forward to in the future.
We have always taken care of our students, and that’s just what we intend to do in the days ahead.
Stay safe and healthy!
