We emphasize leadership and decision making by blending liberal arts and intensive course work in nursing to prepare you for the intellectual and technical challenges of the profession. We offer a variety of field experiences in selected health care agencies, and emphasize active engagement in the local community, so you'll have opportunities to practice your skills beyond the classroom. By graduation, you'll be ready to take the NCLEX-RN exams and work in a variety of health care settings. Our Nursing Resource Center provides simulators and computer labs to practice your skills. You can also join the National Student Nurses Association. The graduate nursing program is designed for professional nurses to become nurse educators or family nurse practitioners.
