At the University of Louisville School of Nursing, the faculty strive to educate individuals to be “Practice Ready.” Practice ready graduates are 25-50% more ready to practice safely during the first year of working as a Registered Nurse. A nursing curriculum that is competency based ensures that student nurses are ready to practice upon graduation. The School of Nursing is also working to prepare more registered nurses in the workforce through our accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing and accelerated Master’s Entry into Professional Nursing programs. The layers of skill and education that graduates from these second-degree programs bring to the workforce are valued by employers and meet the evolving health care needs of society. Cardinal Nurses reflect care, commitment, resiliency, and critical thinking in a 2021 world - today’s nurse: “High Tech, High Touch, and High Impact.”
