The Spanish minor for Nursing Majors is a course of study designed to provide nursing students with the opportunity to achieve advanced proficiency in Spanish in a highly specialized learning environment. Students are required to successfully complete a minimum of 20 credits consisting of three 4-credit courses and four 2-credit courses. The summer Costa Rica trip is also a requirement, where students complete a conversation course and nursing internship.
The college is building a new state-of-the-art facility named Grappone Hall which will become the home of the Jean School of Nursing and Health Sciences. Estimated to be 45,000 square feet in size, the new facility will include nursing simulation labs, high-fidelity classrooms, student study spaces, and other features.
