Supporting a bright future for Purdue Nursing, Pharmacy and Indiana.
Purdue University is working to improve the health of people in Indiana, the nation and the world through the efforts and innovations of the School of Nursing and the College of Pharmacy. The new Nursing and Pharmacy Education Building will foster transformative interprofessional education, expand interdisciplinary human health and behavioral research, strengthen Purdue’s life sciences and advance our land grant mission.
“Expertly trained nurses are fundamental to the health of Indiana residents and communities. Collaboration among nurses, pharmacists and other health professionals occurs daily in hospitals, clinics and other settings. Purdue’s Nursing and Pharmacy Building will further support interprofessional education while increasing the number of Indiana nurses who are expertly prepared to deliver better health outcomes.”

“Future pharmacists must learn in ways that prepare them for a world that will look different in five or 10 years, post-graduation. Tackling issues like reducing the overuse of medications, improving adherence and persistence to therapies, optimizing individualized outcomes, and performing tasks in-person or virtually must be incorporated into learning environments. Today’s healthcare professional must be accomplished in working in an interdisciplinary manner, solving problems in an agile fashion, and using big data to simulate/solve complex health challenges in the most optimal way, while still having the compassion you expect from a trusted healthcare professional.”
