Scottsbluff's LRC

Scottsbluff’s Learning Resource Center

The UNMC Scottsbluff Learning Resource Center provides a personal touch learning experience partnering with cutting edge technology to create a great learning environment. We pride ourselves with our friendly rural surroundings that provide hiking, biking, lakes, top-name restaurants, shopping, theaters and home-town businesses that will spark your interests. UNMC College of Nursing is located on the northern edge of town and only 2 minutes from the Regional West Medical Center.

Our LRC enhances the health care education with 2 simulation labs where faculty direct different scenario simulations to prepare students for real-life health care needs.  Plus, we have a student lounge where students interact and relax between classes and a library when students can study.

Just a few other learning tools include:

  • 75 testing laptops
  • IP video classrooms
  • Charting software in the computer lab to practice electronic hospital charting

Our admission classes on the Scottsbluff campus are sized to develop an enhanced learning atmosphere – only 10 Accelerated BSN students are admitted into this one year program each year plus only 40 Traditional BSN students are admitted each year into the 2-year program. There are also approximately 15 graduate students on campus each year.
