Nursing is one of the most respected professions, and it provides the opportunity to care for others
The College of Nursing at Sullivan University consists of Practical Nursing, Associate of Science in Nursing, and a bridge from Licensed Practical Nursing to Registered Nursing (LPN-RN). The earliest program dates back to the late seventies. Aside from its lengthy history, what makes the College of Nursing unique is its proximity to several major hospitals, its accelerated programs, and its smaller class sizes, which equate to more hands-on training and one-on-one time with professors for each student.
The campus has several competitive features, including two high-fidelity simulation labs. A simulation man or, “sim-mom,” provides students simulation experiences for various acute care scenarios such as aspiration/choking or allergic reactions. And, a simulation mom or, “sim-mom,” enables experiences with different birthing scenarios from high-risk to low-risk situations. These high-tech labs have video capability so that professors can record the simulation and debrief the students with valuable feedback. The facility also has three skills labs, an on-campus library, and on-site student services. The classroom faculty--who hold a minimum of master’s degrees in nursing--bring a wealth of real-world experience, some of which are still practicing. The College of Nursing is approved by the Kentucky Board of Nursing in addition to the University’s SACSCOC accreditation.
Nursing is one of the most respected professions, and it provides the opportunity to care for others. After graduation, pre-licensure programs require a certification exam in order to practice as licensed professionals in their respective fields. Many new graduates from nursing programs will find careers in acute care or a long-term care facility. Others may go into psychiatric facilities, obstetrics, emergency rooms, pediatrics, or ICUs. Nurses can also continue their education with certifications in various specialties.
