Graduates will be ready to start in acute care settings after receiving invaluable hands-on training and confidence with skills labs, state-of-the-art simulations and the state’s only real-world clinical rotations in a hospital-based inpatient nursing unit. Additionally, students can train and receive a Planetree Fellowship in Person-Centered Care certification to bolster their resumes with demonstrated knowledge, experience and leadership in person-centered care.
