Why School of Nursing?

Our Students

Each year Quinnipiac’s nursing students gain a global perspective on health care through various international service trips and study abroad opportunities that take them to countries such as Nicaragua and Guatemala to assist local health clinics in treating underserved populations. 

Working with veterans is one of the nursing school’s great privileges. Every semester we establish Nursing’s Joining Forces, a program that creates an interprofessional group of students and faculty who examine the health issues that affect our veterans and determine how best to address those needs.
