Why School of Nursing?

An individualized learning experience

Our simulation labs give our students essential learning experiences to safely make mistakes and learn from them — while gaining confidence in the clinical setting.

World-Sized Classroom

As close to clinical as possible

Experience is key to a nursing education. Our classrooms and training facilities reflect the clinical environments you'll be working in, and are equipped with some of the most advanced interactive training tools offered in health sciences education. Chief among these are our adult, pediatric and neonatal simulation mannequins. Located in the Health Assessment Laboratories, these mannequins breathe, blink, sweat and require the same kind of attention as real patients, preparing you to respond thoughtfully but also instinctually to a range of patient needs as they arise.

Of course, modern health care relies on something of even greater importance than technology: the seamless collaboration of nurses with many others in the medical professions. Our close proximity to the School of Health Sciences and School of Medicine make it possible for you to work with future doctors, physician assistants, radiologists, perfusionists and others. You'll learn how to communicate and work cooperatively within a patient-care team, an essential skill for giving accurate diagnoses and delivering the highest quality treatment possible over a patient's lifespan.
