The offices of the Nursing Department and the Nursing Laboratory are centrallylocated in Boyd Science Center, on the quad, at Muskingum University. Nursing is one of several sciences that comprise the Science Division.

The Chair of the Department, the full time faculty and secretary all have offices on the 4th floor of this building.

Nursing theory classes are delivered on campus in a traditional style for the pre-licensure students. RNs working to complete their BSN degree attend theory classes using distance technology (online).

A view of human simulators

The Nursing Skills laboratory is located on the second floor of Boyd. The space is newly renovated and equipped with the most current technology for preparing our students for clinical practice. The laboratory is fitted with five hospital beds and the supporting technology for completing a comprehensive health assessment and the practice of nursing skills prior to clinical practice. This space also seats 20 students at conference tables for group work or discussion. Computer technology includes five networked computer stations, five VitalSim human simulators, SimMan, SimKid, and SimBaby simulators to serve the learning needs of a wide variety of students.

Courses that include a clinical practice component will have designated faculty and clinical agencies to complete that portion of the course. Agencies are carefully selected to meet the learning objectives of the courses as well as the practice standards expected by the program. The location and timing of clinical practice is determined by the faculty based on the objectives of the course.  In order to accommodate the agencies needs, as well as our own, students may gain clinical experience at times other than Monday through Friday day-time hours.
