The USU Nursing Program prepares students to apply the concepts of nursing to provide and improve healthcare in a challenging and diverse practice environment. Science courses such as anatomy and physiology provide a foundation on which nurse educators guide student learning to acquire the core knowledge, skills, and attitudes required of modern nurses.

The program embraces nursing as a practice profession that requires considerable psychomotor skill and cognitive ability to provide safe and effective care. USU offers state-of-the-art simulation laboratories, experienced nurse educators, and a wide variety of clinical experiences.
