Meet Lucina our high-fidelity simulator by CAE. Our new, high-fidelity simulator help students prepare for entry-level nursing practice with real-life scenarios that promote positive patient outcomes. Come learn how the human body responds to disease processes and how you as a nurse will use critical thinking skills to facilitate appropriate interventions. There is nothing like hands-on learning.
Put your skills to use before you graduate. We partner with local hospitals and agencies to provide supervised work experience in medical settings. Clinicals will prepare students for real-life scenarios in a safe environment while giving opportunities to share Jesus’ love with others.
Learning in the classroom is one of the core ways that you can grow as a person. However, we believe classrooms can only go so far. That is why each student has the opportunity to connect with a faculty or staff member to talk about class, life, and Jesus. Because learning is more than just knowledge, it is experiencing life-changing relationships.
