The Cabrini University Nursing program prepares graduates to pass the NCLEX-RN examination, required of all registered nurses. They will be equipped to competently practice and thrive in complex healthcare environments and continually advocate for their patients and the nursing profession.
In addition to their community and acute care off-campus clinical experiences, students will practice real-life scenarios with faculty on campus in two high-fidelity simulation suites and a health assessment skills lab in our state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Center, opening winter 2020/21. Cabrini’s caring and personal community of faculty, staff, and fellow students offers support as students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed as a collaborative healthcare leader.
