About the School of Nursing: 

 

The School of Nursing serves nearly 1,000 graduate and undergraduate students. Faculty and staff work with colleagues in our Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences to create innovative interprofessional educational experiences that prepare students for today's health care challenges. The Center, completed in 2013, encompasses 325,000 square feet designed for collaborative learning including 48 pro-section stations, 16 standardized patient rooms, an exceptional health sciences library, 7 high-fidelity simulation rooms including 2 ORs and a PACU, health assessment labs, advanced diagnostic imaging equipment and classrooms outfitted with the latest technology. As one of a few schools in the nation to be holistically endorsed, we emphasize the psycho-social and spiritual aspects of care, as well as the physical. We offer traditional, accelerated, and RN-to-BSN programs at the baccalaureate level. At the graduate level, our Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program prepares baccalaureate graduates to be nurse anesthetists or nurse practitioners specializing in adult-gerontology or families. Post-master’s online options are specifically designed for advanced practice nurses and executive nurse leaders. A new online master’s program prepares graduates for careers in mid-level management, informatics, education or care coordination.
