The School of Nursing’s unique approach to nursing — as a means of enhancing health and quality of life as defined by each individual — is reflected in the curriculum and classroom. While emphasizing the scientific study of nursing, classes are taught with the view that nursing is a human science. Consistent with CBU’s faith-based mission, the master’s curriculum emphasizes a holistic perspective utilizing nursing theory as a guide.
CBU’s School of Nursing extends its uniquely holistic perspective into the clinical setting as well, with specially selected practicum opportunities that allow candidates the option to practice in a variety of healthcare settings, while serving individuals, families, and communities. Practicum hours are completed under the instruction and supervision of CBU’s School of Nursing faculty who share the faith-based mission and holistic perspective for providing nursing care.
For additional experiential learning, students also enjoy access to CBU’s state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Lab and Resource Center. These rooms are equipped with low fidelity and high fidelity simulation equipment, human-computer interaction programs, and advanced practice task trainers for customized learning.
