“We are pleased to be recognized for the outstanding outcomes our students produce,” said Nursing Department Chair Donna Lister. “We have highly motivated, intelligent, and engaged students. Every student receives individual attention to their progress and learning as they advance in the program.”
SUU’s nursing program values experiential education offering several hands-on experiences for students. Students are able to practice nursing in hospital, care center, home health, hospice, general community, school, and community clinic settings.
“When students graduate they have a portfolio of experiences that is rivaled by very few graduate nurses,” said Lister. “Nursing lends itself to recognizing and personalizing the individual. Our faculty and staff are very good at meeting the individual where they are, and helping them grow in the profession.”
The RN Nursing organization uses the NCLEX exam pass rates, tuition costs, faculty strength and other information important to nurses in determining its rankings.
