The College of Nursing’s Learning Resource Center (LRC) is a hand’s on learning environment where our students are given the opportunity to begin the process of turning theory into practice. Students work in pairs to learn physical assessment skills and work with high-tech task trainers to learn technical skills. Our nursing staff strives to provide a student-centered approach to help each and every student to be successful. Most students agree the LRC is fun place to learn!
