UA Nursing School Offers Students Hands-on Experience


Posted to Nursing, Nursing Specialties

At the UA College of Education and Health Professions, the Eleanor Mann School of Nursing offers its students a progressive curriculum to better prepare them for the nursing profession.

After students graduate from an approved nursing program, they often receive on-the-job training, but those who graduate from the UA School of Nursing already have a strong background in hands-on experience.

Many of the courses offered by the UA nursing school incorporate experiential activities to give students a better idea of current issues in the nursing field.

The students in the UA program begin some clinical work experience as early as their sophomore year in the nursing school.

“All of our courses provide services to the individual client or community, as that is what nursing centers (are about), whether it is in the hospital, school system, community center, nursing home or other community agencies in which nursing is present,” said Nancy Smith-Blair, associate professor and interim director of the UA School of Nursing.
