Developing Whole Leaders for the whole World

Message from the Dean


The mission of the Anna Vaughn College of Nursing is to prepare professionally competent graduates—whole in spirit, mind, and body—who go into every person’s world to address physical, psychosocial, and spiritual health of individuals, families, communities, and populations through the ministry of nursing.


The Theory of Nursing for the Whole Person© (TNWP) provides the philosophical foundation for professional practice. Nurses address the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of individuals, families, and communities throughout the world.


Oral Roberts University College of Nursing has scheduled an accreditation evaluation of the baccalaureate degree program in nursing with the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) for October 26-28, 2020. We would like to give students, alumni, faculty and the practice community an opportunity to provide written input into the deliberations of the evaluation team. Written and signed third-party comments will be accepted by CCNE from now until October 5, 2020.

During its review of the program, the evaluation team considers written third-party comments, if any, that relate to the program’s compliance with the accreditation standards. Third-party comments are shared with the evaluation team prior to the visit, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program.

If you would like to submit a third-party comment, please submit to:
