A new nursing college in Indianapolis will begin classes next month.
The Chamberlain College of Nursing is now taking applications for students to attend classes at this new campus.
Along with a brand new campus, the nursing college is host to the SIMCARE CENTER(TM), a state of the art facility that specializes in simulated patient care. At the center, nursing students will have the ability to learn in simulated real-life clinical setting and scenarios.
Another highlight at the new nursing college campus is the Center for Academic Success, a place that supplied complete resources and support for students studying at the college.
In a press release on Thursday, Susan Groenwalk, national president of Chamberlain College of Nursing said, “There will be greater demand on the healthcare system in coming years, and our workforce needs to be ready. Indiana will not be able to build a strong nursing workforce if prospective nurses do not have adequate access to quality nursing education. Through the opening of the Indianapolis campus, Chamberlain will educate future nursing professionals to meet the state’s healthcare demands.”
The press release also points out a well-known fact among health care professionals, especially those teaching a nursing college across the country. In the next decade, the U.S. could be short on nurses in quantities reaching the hundreds of thousands – if not a million. This is why so many nursing colleges are springing up in small communities across the nation, to prepare students to meet this coming job demand.
The curriculum at the nursing college in Indianapolis provides a BSN and can be completed within three years by dedicated students. This campus makes the tenth national campus for the nursing college of Chamberlain and open house begins on January 12th.
