Quinnipiac University was established in 1929, and is located in Hamden, CT. They offer undergraduate and graduate programs in their nursing school, one of twelve schools nationally endorsed by the American Holistic Nursing Credentialing Corporation. This means that their nursing education focuses on the whole person, meaning that a patient must be cared for with consideration of spiritual, lifestyle, cultural, and psychosocial factors. Nursing students at Quinnipiac will further experience a very collaborative environment with the School of Medicine and the School of Health Sciences.
Students have over 300 clinical settings to choose from where they will gain hands-on experience and exposure to the field. Their facilities on campus have advanced and interactive equipment for student learning and practice. Their simulator mannequins aren’t one and the same—they have an adult, pediatric, and neonatal simulator. Volunteer work is another major component of Quinnipiac’s program, and they encourage their students to be advocates and inquisitive learners.
