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.
