The department chair of the program said clinical training was at the heart of the nursing program at WCSU.
“Starting in the sophomore year, our students get a great deal of medical and surgical nursing experience as part of our curriculum, with three clinical courses in their sophomore and junior years as well as the senior clinical course that ties it all together,” said Dr. Joan Palladino, in a prepared statement. “Our students get more hours of experience in clinical settings, and that means they are very well prepared when they enter the workplace.”
