Our provides a seamless progression from student to practicing nurse. In your first year, you'll experience your first nursing course and build a strong core of knowledge in select science courses.

Before you go into the field, our modern nursing lab gives you the tools and equipment you’ll need to assess patients, interact with colleagues, and utilize complex care management software.

Years two and three feature clinical, ‘in-the-field’ placements at partner sites throughout the region including hospitals, clinics, and long-term care facilities.

During the final year, you’ll be paired with a registered nurse. This partnership allows you to provide real care to real patients, and your mentor will be by your side for advice and encouragement.

As an incoming student, you’ll be assigned a faculty advisor that works with you through the entire program and understands your career goals.

Each class has a faculty advisor, and your classmates will meet regularly as a group to share your clinical experiences.

It all adds up to a nationally recognized, competitive program that is accredited by:
