Why Our School of Nursing?

Hands-On Approach

—   Learn by Doing

Our School of Nursing is a nurturing and communal environment seeking to enrich students both academically and socially. Students begin working hands on with patients (under guided supervision) within the first five weeks of their nursing program.
