Where tradition meets innovation
The core mission of the College of Pharmacy, Nursing, and Allied Sciences is to produce the most competent, caring, and ethical professionals possible.
The NDSU pharmacy program was established in 1902 with only five students enrolled. More than 100 years later, the college has evolved into a center of excellence at North Dakota State University (NDSU), to become a major interdisciplinary healthcare education program serving our state, region, and nation. In May 2006, pharmacy, along with nursing, clinical laboratory science (now called medical laboratory science), radiologic science and respiratory care, became the College of Pharmacy, Nursing, and Allied Sciences. During the 2011-2012 academic year, the College launched a first of its kind Vaccinology Minor as a Tri-College consortium effort involving MSUM and Concordia College in an effort to prepare students for careers in the biopharmaceutical industry, biomedical graduate school, and a broad range of health profession careers. A new collaborative Master of Public Health Program for North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota was approved by the ND State Board of Higher Education in November 2010. Full implementation of the program will occur in fall 2012 semester. There are around 1812 students currently enrolled in the college's pre-professional, professional and graduate programs.
Through its mission, the NDSU College of PNAS advances health care through research and scholarship and prepares students to become competent, caring, ethical, professionals and citizens, committed to lifelong learning. In addition, through its people and programs the College places an emphasis and value on people; quality; professionalism and ethics; knowledge, teaching, and learning; research and scholarship; patient-focused care; and interdisciplinary education.
