Why Carroll Nursing?
Why choose Carroll's Baccalaureate Nursing Program?
The nursing program focuses on a holistic approach to healthcare, offering an intentional integration of theory and practical application, guided by an accomplished faculty who are passionate about teaching. Our diocesan Catholic mission permeates everything we do at Carroll, so you’ll find our nursing students engaging in service activities throughout the year, including through the campus chapter of the Student Nurses Association (CCSNA) and nursing honor society, Sigma. And post-pandemic, students will have the opportunity to travel the world through one of Carroll’s many diverse study abroad and service opportunities. Studying nursing at Carroll brings with it a number of distinct advantages.
The E.L. Wiegand Nursing Simulation Center at Carroll is among the best nurse training facilities in the region. From the sophomore year on, Carroll's laboratory equipment and high-fidelity patient simulators allow students to experience the challenges nurses face in many treatment scenarios, from patient assessment to labor and delivery to emergency situations. Studies show these simulated nursing experiences make graduates of the program less likely to experience performance anxiety once they are out in the real world of nursing. Our students also excel in nursing skills performance, from inserting an IV and installing tubes to catheter care. Challenge now builds confidence when it really matters.
Because of our outstanding program and depth of training, Carroll nursing graduates possess the knowledge, maturity and clinical skills to be successful practitioners in a wide variety of health care settings. Graduates from a 4-year Baccalaureate nursing program have more career options upon graduation.
Our graduates are consistently looked upon as leaders, thanks to the critical thinking, communication, and positive attitudes they bring in addition to being skilled caregivers. That’s why you’ll find them being accepted into top graduate-level programs and providing the highest quality care in settings from Montana, to Washington, to Texas, to New York City.
