KANSAS CITY — The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Nursing is getting a longer name.

The school announced Monday that it's becoming the School of Nursing and Health Studies.

Dean Lora Lacey-Haun said the school she leads has expanded beyond nursing. The school also trains people to oversee hospital and clinic operations, conduct community outreach, serve as patient advocates and health educators and manage electronic health record conversions.

Lacey-Haun said the school wanted a name that more closely represents the breadth of offerings it provides.
