Streamline your nursing education
Train close to home. Complete just one application for consideration at all five UNMC nursing campuses across Nebraska. Our nursing campuses attract students from across the U.S. and the globe.
College of Nursing faculty use simulation, virtual reality, team-based learning, e-learning, learning across campuses, and “flipped classrooms” to help you prepare for a career in nursing. Learn to manage the complexities of acute and critically ill patients, family and community dynamics, primary care, and working with populations to improve health outcomes.
The College of Nursing uses active learning in coursework to help you learn more, become the best nurse you can be, and create a supportive, engaged environment that fits your learning style.
UNMC has relationships with over 100 health care institutions across Nebraska to provide our professional nursing students a diverse range of experiences from clinics to critical-access hospitals. Your community needs you! UNMC nursing graduates are in demand among employers throughout Nebraska.
