Meet the Graduate Program Director,
Dr. Alicia Huckstadt

Alicia HuckstadtWelcome to the School of Nursing Graduate Program. Our philosophy in the Graduate Nursing Program is to prepare students for advanced practice roles in nursing and to be accountable for clinical and organizational decision making based on scholarly evidence, principles of ethics, relevant theories and health care policy.

Upon completion of the Graduate Program, the advanced practice nurse is prepared to provide leadership in the analysis of factors influencing health and the subsequent implementation and evaluation of strategies for improving health in a multidisciplinary, globally aware, culturally sensitive manner.


Message from Program Director

“As the director of the graduate nursing program, I guide the graduate programs and faculty to provide the best educational experiences possible for our students as they prepare for leadership roles in advanced practice and achieve lifelong learning skills. Our graduates are positioned for current and evolving state, national and global advanced practice careers. Their successes continue to amaze me and I feel tremendous pride knowing that our programs have provided them with solid foundations to achieve such heights and adapt to the many changes in our health care system.”
