Electronic surveys

There are electronic surveys for several of the programs offered to help the school evaluate their performance. The nursing school wants your feedback after graduation and encourages graduates to complete the electronic survey for their program. Surveys are also available for employers who hire a graduate of the Missouri State nursing school. Completion of these surveys will help the school continue to improve.

Alumni donors can demonstrate their desire to continue improving the quality of education in the school of nursing at Missouri State by giving a private contribution. Your gift – no matter its size – supports student research opportunities, funds scholarships, purchases equipment, improves facilities and provides for faculty development and research.
