Rigorous academic coursework, combined with hands-on learning experiences, make the Decker School of Nursing graduates exceptional. Prior to graduating, students complete hundreds of hours of off-site clinical rotations in acute care and community settings as part of coursework.
In 2020, Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences moved to Johnson City, N.Y., joining the University's School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences on the University's nearly 15-acre Health Sciences Campus. The move provides Decker College with additional space, enabling program expansion and providing much-needed room to meet growing simulation demands.
Internships, Research Opportunities, and More
Decker College houses the Innovative Simulation and Practice Center (ISPC), an accredited facility and an integral part of the educational experience. The ISPC provides students with hands-on skills training, high-fidelity patient simulations, standardized patient experiences and virtual-reality scenarios.
