Hiram nursing students receive a well-rounded education: they learn the scientific skills they need to be knowledgeable health care providers and gain clinical experiences that prepare them to be leaders in the field. At the same time, they benefit from our 165-year liberal arts tradition. This tradition prepares them to understand that knowledge is interrelated and interdisciplinary and to be critical observers of how the world works. They see issues, alternatives, solutions and aspects of life that more narrowly-trained minds do not.
These skills, combined with the knowledge and skills in the discipline of nursing, are essential to the preparation of those who serve as professional nurses.
