Wilson’s nursing program thrives

The second-year nursing students gather around the “patient” in the Rosenkrans clinical lab and look expectantly at Julie Beck, assistant professor of nursing. “The emergency room is sending us Michael, who was injured in a motorcycle accident,” Beck tells the students. “He’s 27, overweight and a smoker. He has road rash on his legs, arm and back. He was not wearing a helmet. ER is too busy and can’t keep him, so he is now our patient. Proceed with your assessments.”
Instead of condensing the nursing program into two and a half years of courses, we have four years to learn nursing content at Wilson. That makes a huge difference in your confidence level and your competence level.

Partners in Nursing

On any given day, Wilson nursing students can find themselves off campus shadowing nurses during a 12-hour shift at Summit Health’s Chambersburg Hospital, assessing residents’ vital signs at the Menno Haven Retirement Community or observing patients at Keystone Health’s public clinics.
The goal of our undergraduate program is to give our students a hands-on clinical experience as early as possible, and we are so fortunate to have these partners to help us provide for those experiences.
