Message from Dorothy A Gomez, PhD, RN-CNE

Welcome to the Marian University Leighton School of Nursing!Dean of LSON

I am privileged to introduce you to the Leighton School of Nursing at Marian University where we offer the Bachelor of Science (BSN) and the Master of Science (MSN) in Nursing. Our graduates are highly respected in Indianapolis and across the nation for their expertise and dedication to the nursing profession, which is a great sense of pride for us. 

Marian University is ideal for students looking for personalized education from outstanding faculty. The faculty in the school of nursing prepares student nurses to be clinicians, nurse leaders, nurse educators and scholars within the context of the four Franciscan Sponsorship Values: dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship.

In order to further the university’s vision “to provide an education that profoundly transforms lives, society and the world,” students will experience extraordinary simulation practice in a state-of-the-art educational facility, collaborate with the College of Osteopathic Medicine and receive exposure to a variety of clinical settings. In addition, students can choose to study abroad, serve in medical missions and lead student organizations.  I look forward to meeting you and wish you the best as you pursue your degree at Marian University.
