With technology and thoughtfully designed space, we simulate real-life health care situations like interviewing a patient, reading an X-ray, or administering an injection. The St. Elizabeth Healthcare Simulation Center features seven simulation rooms including an operating room and intensive care unit. Well prepared nurses, respiratory therapists, and radiological technologists are critical in emergency situations. The spaces for practice, as described below, allow for exploration and learning in a safe environment.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing/master’s degree in nursing/ postgraduate APRN certificate and Post Master's Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at Northern Kentucky University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, 655 K Street NW, Suite 750, Washington DC, 20001, 202-887-6791.
Consistent with the mission and values of Northern Kentucky University and the College of Health Professions, the faculty and staff of the Department of Nursing promote an innovative environment to facilitate excellence in academics, scholarship, engagement, practice, leadership and lifelong learning within a global context to promote health.
