Nursing at Elms

The Elms Difference

Having educated nurses for four decades, we deliver a student-centered education grounded in contemporary nursing and healthcare standards as well as real-life family experiences and patient needs. Our highly-experienced faculty, state-of-the art simulation lab, range of unique clinical settings, and the caRe vaN—which serves a marginalized community—provide exceptional learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Across generations, students come to Elms from the regional community, returning to it—from bedside to curbside—as skilled, compassionate nursing professionals empowered to effect positive change and valued by employers and patients alike.
