THE QUALITY OF CARE.
Studying and learning from faculty members at WAU provides nursing students a rich experience from practitioners currently working in some of the nation’s most prestigious healthcare facilities. For example, the VA of Washington, D.C., Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C., and Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
The department has several high-fidelity manikins, such as Victoria, the birthing mom, to provide students real-life experiences in a simulated environment.
Because our full-time and adjunct faculty members are employed at the clinical facilities where nursing students train, our students learn from faculty members who are current nursing practitioners.
Nursing faculty are actively involved in creating engaging curricula and seeking learning experiences from all aspects of healthcare to give students holistic exposure to the nursing world.
Due to the university’s proximity to Washington, D.C., students can visit world-renowned places such as the National Institutes of Health and the US Capitol.
At the NIH Clinical Center, a hospital solely dedicated to clinical research, students can connect the utilization of research concepts and evidence-based practice. On the NIH campus, students can go to the world’s largest medical library.
Also, in Washington, D.C., the American Nurses Association is within a five-mile radius of the university.
