School of Nursing
In the School of Nursing, we place special emphasis on developing critical thinking skills and therapeutic techniques through both classroom and clinical experiences. You will work with faculty and other nurses in a variety of local and regional health care facilities to gain hands-on experience in actual patient care. Our popular lab and simulation experiences create opportunities for students to learn skills and practice critical thinking for patient care while here on campus. Many of your clinical courses take place in the state-of-the-art Nursing Technology Center (NTC), which offers nursing students specialized labs, such as the Pendill Home Care Suite, and in our School of Nursing Simulation Lab, which includes the Benda-Drake Intensive Care Simulation Room.
NMU's program has more than 90 percent of graduates finding work in six months of graduation. Along with positions in hospitals, clinics and physician offices, nurses also work in business, occupational, community and home health care settings.
