Facilities that build community: Signe Skott Cooper Hall, home to the School of Nursing since 2014, offers multiple high-fidelity clinical simulation labs, research suites, and one of the largest active learning classroom complexes in the country. Cooper Hall supports the health and wellness of the School of Nursing community with exercise spaces, an indoor walking trail, meditation rooms, and more.
Rigorous academic programs: We enroll more than 500 students with degree offerings that include multiple paths to completing a bachelor of science in nursing, two doctoral programs in nursing practice and research—the DNP and PhD, four certificate programs, and ongoing continuing education.
Strong support for research: Extensive administrative support and rich opportunities for collaboration await at this research-intensive university, consistently ranked among the top public universities for overall research funding.
