Students learn using a dummy

Going above and beyond the rest 

The Department of Nursing wants students to have the best training possible by the time they graduate from any of Missouri State's nursing programs.  In addition to community learning, the department also gives students access to state-of- the-art facilities and helpful resources to help them become better health care professionals.

  • Simulation laboratory

    Students have the opportunity to practice acute care skills on mannequins in every stage of life in the department’s simulation laboratory.  Programmable mannequins allow students to be exposed to many different types of illness and disease, from fevers to heart attacks.

  • Health care resources

    The department has complied a listing of health care resources that includes links to national nursing organizations, nursing research journals, and the best websites to learn more information about the latest developments in nursing techniques.

  • Advisory committee

    An advisory committee made up of nursing professionals in the southwest Missouri region gives their input on curriculum and helps the department continue to provide health care to the community.
