Transforming health care, one student at a time
Our unique approach to patient care has distinguished us as the only bachelor’s degree program in New England and 1 of only 15 nursing schools in the nation that offer programs endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation. Equally important to our philosophy of holistic care is our commitment to inclusivity within the Quinnipiac community, the surrounding local community and the global community at large.
Our faculty set the example you’ll follow and are immersed in integrated practice through ongoing clinical experience and research. They bring real-life applications, teachable experiences and knowledge of current practices to the classroom every day. Through their guidance, you’ll learn to address the whole patient by understanding their physical, socioeconomic and emotional needs.
Purposefully located within the Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, you’ll experience the essential role nurses play in integrated teams as you regularly collaborate with students from other health care programs. The knowledge, instincts and team-based skills you develop in classrooms and labs will be the foundation for your clinical and field work. As you accumulate experience, your skills and confidence will reach the levels necessary to handle all the challenges inherent in 21st-century health care.
Our 2019-2020 Year in Review
Our annual viewbook provides a visual journey that brings our philosophy of nursing education and practice to life. It details the student experience and class profiles, as well as how we continue to innovate in our teaching and expand our clinical partnerships. It also covers the many ways our students, faculty, staff and alumni have distinguished themselves throughout the academic year, be it through clinical excellence, community impact, and research, or earning prestigious grants and national awards.
The 2019-2020 edition particularly illustrates the resilience, flexibility and courage shown by members of the Quinnipiac nursing community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought unprecedented challenges to both public health and education.
