Nursing majors have a chance to apply classroom techniques in real-world clinical environments through partnerships with Mercy Medical Center, UnityPoint St. Luke’s, the VA Medical Center and many local agencies in rehabilitation, home care, long-term care, school nursing, clinic nursing and many other agencies. Students provide direct patient care, patient education, family assessments and teaching and group-oriented projects. Whether in faculty-supervised clinical groups or independent clinical activities, students are guided, evaluated and supported in their professional skills development.
