Welcome, Alumni!

As alumni of Marquette University College of Nursing, you know we have a long and rich dedication to developing The Marquette Nurse. 

The Marquette Nurse is educated with a focus on excellence, compassion and leadership, and grounded in Jesuit principles and approach to teaching/learning.  While other colleges of nursing can graduate good nurses, the unique characteristics of The Marquette Nurse include:

  • Leadership at all levels
  • Critical thinking
  • Advocating for others
  • A commitment to cura personalis, and
  • A passion for social justice.

Marquette nurses can be found across the country and the globe, making a difference in largest numbers in the southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois communities. Look for more information on Marquette nurse alumni who are changing the world,  through their service, practice, expertise and passion.
