The Decker School of Nursing

DSON prides itself on both the quality and the quantity of its clinical practice experiences that are seen as the foundation for graduates' success in professional practice. Prior to graduating, students complete hundreds of hours of off-site clinical rotation experiences in acute care and community settings as part of course work. Furthermore, the Decker School also houses an Innovative Simulation and Practice Center. The Center has become an integral component of the education each student experiences at the Decker School of Nursing.
