We are health care

Since 1888, our calling has remained the same: to prepare compassionate health care professionals to provide high-quality care. The past 130 years led us to where we are today, and they serve as a guide as we continue to prepare students to be the best in the various realms of health care.

We dedicate ourselves to helping our students to achieve their full potential in health care.

Simulation Lab OR

Early hands-on experience in state-of-the-art labs on campus & at a diverse setting of clinical sites.

We find it essential to provide you with as many hands-on learning opportunities as possible before interacting with real patients. Our Simulation Lab includes a patient room, control center, debriefing room and two high-fidelity mannequins–one adult and one infant. The capability of the mannequins to simulate symptoms, diseases and conditions you are likely to see in a real health care setting allow you to perform many common procedures such as starting an IV, obtaining a blood sample, taking an X-ray, administering medications and more.

On-campus housing

We created our residence hall to be open and inviting, which makes for an easy transition from home. Our four-bedroom apartment-style suites come with two bathrooms, a full-appliance kitchen and a living space. We provide Wi-Fi, basic cable, a fitness center and laundry facility–all free to you as a resident. In your spare time, you can partake in regular community activities or get involved as a Resident Advisor or Residence Hall Council member.
