Personalized Attention and Small Class Sizes

Our programs offer students personalized attention through small class sizes, advising, and dedicated faculty focused on student success. A degree from one of these programs enables students to easily transition to an advanced degree. Students within our radiologic science and respiratory care programs are also provided with the opportunity for a strong clinical education, with other opportunities to connect with employers for possible job placement.

Simulation Center


NKU’s Center for Simulation Education uses technology and thoughtfully designed spaces to create a safe learning environment where students can practice real-life healthcare situations.  The center features eight inpatient simulation rooms including an operating room, and a multi-bed critical care room.  In addition, the center has a simulated home health environment and eight outpatient examination rooms.  The simulation spaces, as described below, allow for exploration and learner-centered education.
