Simulation Learning

Simulation environments allow our students to reach their top potential in clinical settings. The college is preparing to expand its simulation footprint by renovating the current Granger Simulation Lab and exploring an interdisciplinary health facility that will house newly donated simulation equipment. 


The College of Nursing is rapidly expanding its research efforts to address the growing need for nursing science. As we train the next generation of nursing researchers, our Spartan Nurses are transforming the health of individuals and communities through patient-focused studies.

Endowed Professorships

As the College of Nursing pursues its mission of advancing the health of individuals and communities, it creates opportunities for top nursing researchers to join a collaborative academic environment. The college aims to retain and attract great healthcare leaders through endowed faculty roles.


Thanks to generosity of our donors and friends, the College of Nursing offers several scholarships to allow students to reach their full potential without fear of financial burdens. The college is expanding enrollment in all programs over the next 10 years, thus increasing the need for scholarships.
