You’ll gain a competitive edge in the job market through extensive, hands-on experience in professional settings where you’ll learn to interact with real patients. We’ve designed our clinical programs to build the diverse set of skills needed by today’s nurses, and have developed partnerships with the following clinical sites where you'll work in teams with health care professionals treating patients of all ages.

Accelerate your certification


The fact that our School of Nursing is one of only 13 nursing schools with holistically endorsed programs by the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation (AHNCC) has a positive effect for our students’ careers. 

Graduates from our nursing programs have the added benefits of an expedited application to become certified holistic nurses. The usual requirements — one year of nurse practitioner or holistic nursing practice, 48 hours of continuing education in holistic nursing, and a reflective essay — are waived. Quinnipiac graduates only need to pass a quantitative test to become certified.

Space to practice

The Relaxation and Wellness Studio on the North Haven Campus offers a place to unwind, reconnect and release the stresses of the day.

“The School of Nursing faculty believes an essential aspect of integrating holism into the curriculum is providing classroom, lab, simulation and clinical experiences that foster the students’ understanding of what whole-person caring is,” said Cynthia Barrere, professor of nursing. “They blend both eastern and western approaches in nursing practice to provide students with a solid foundation in caring and healing practice.”
