Nursing Program Benefits
  • Our Faculty

    Lifelong learning is a core value at Capital University. Nursing faculty takes this value to heart. Capital University nursing professors are more than just teachers; they're expert practitioners in their specialty areas. What's more, they are constantly refining the curriculum to reflect new knowledge so the concepts and techniques you learn have immediate applications in the real world. Nursing professors are also committed to individualized instruction, they'll spend the time to make sure you get the full benefit of their knowledge.

    Small Class Size

    During clinical experiences, the faculty/student ratio is 1:8. In the laboratory, the average class size is 16.

    Integrated State Licensing Exam Review

    We use standardized exams throughout our program that allow practice in the testing format used in the RN licensure exam.

    Accelerated Specialization

    Students are admitted directly into the School of Nursing as freshmen and immediately assigned a faculty adviser. This enables them to focus more quickly on areas of interest and make connections faster than they otherwise might.

    ROTC Nursing Education Program

    The Capital University Nursing Program has been recognized by the Reserve Officers Training Corps as a Partner in Nursing Education for the preparation of U.S. Army nurses. Of the more than 400 college and university nursing programs in the U.S., Capital's is one of only 40 to be honored with this distinction.

    Capital's nursing/ROTC partnership is a strong collaboration that leads to a BSN degree and a commission as an Army officer. 

    Our Clinical Partners

    At the Capital University, we believe there are many ways to solve problems and to learn. So we offer our students hands-on clinical experiences in a wide range of settings, including local hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission of Accreditation of Hospitals and local health-care agencies accredited by the appropriate accrediting bodies
