Educate Tomorrow's Nurses
The Duquesne University School of Nursing is widely recognized as a pioneer in nursing education. Students receive exceptional, hands-on learning in our state-of-the-art Learning and Simulation Center, in addition to our 21-week clinical immersion program. Additionally, all undergraduate and graduate nursing students have an opportunity to experience another culture through our study abroad programs.
We also value the teacher-scholar model. Our faculty are active in scholarship and research, simultaneously supervising student research.
