Junior Year Your junior year consists mostly of nursing-specific courses and increased time in a clinical setting. You will learn how to care for mothers and babies and children and adults with chronic illnesses. Each semester you will log 240 hours of clinical practice — working in health care agencies and our simulation lab. As you’ve learned by now, simulation learning is heavily incorporated into our approach to education. And it’s something our students really enjoy. During the second semester of your junior year, you may choose to study abroad in Dublin, Ireland (see page 15). Or after your junior year, you may want to join several other nursing students who take advantage of our study abroad program in Piura, Peru, which fulfills your community and population health nursing theory and clinical requirements.

I knew what to expect when it came to the culture but had no idea what to expect when it came to health care. We went on home visits, cared for hospice patients, visited a local nursing home, helped run local village clinics and taught people about basic health topics. All the while, my eyes were opened to how blessed we are to have the health care we do in the United States.” Megan Paterkiewicz, ’12
