Student Opportunities

You will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of healthcare experiences throughout the school of nursing.

Medical missions

In ACU's School of Nursing, your experience can include medical mission trips throughout the world. You will have the opportunity to put your faith and learning into action, seeing firsthand the difference you can make.

State-of-the-art simulation lab

ACU School of Nursing's human patient simulation lab allows learners to develop, refine and apply knowledge and skills through realistic clinical situations. Students participate in interactive learning experiences and simulated patient care scenarios to meet learning objectives, develop competencies and gain experience within a safe, supervised setting.

Focus on research

As a nursing student, you may also serve as research assistants to nursing faculty or conduct faculty-guided research as part of ACU's Pursuit program. Undergraduate research opportunities are an integral part of the student experience at Abilene Christian University.

As your program is scheduled for an on-site evaluation by CCNE, you must notify your communities of interest approximately three months before the evaluation that an accreditation review is scheduled and indicate that written and signed third-party comments will be accepted by CCNE until October 6, 2014. The announcement must include CCNE's name and mailing address, and ask that all comments be directed to:
