Aid Your Education With Experience

Through skills labs, simulations experiences, and clinical rotations your education will be aided with more than 900 hours of hands-on experience. You'll prepare to become an important member of a health care team by learning about the nursing process and how it is used to care for individuals across the lifespan. If you are a good problem solver, enjoy working with people, follow procedures and regulations, then this may be the career area for you.

The Anatomage Table

The Anatomage Table is a new resource for students to learn about the human body in a life-like way. This high-tech equipment replicates the diagnostic approach in a healthcare setting using interactive visuals of anatomy and physiology. It brings what students are learning in textbooks to life without having to use human cadavers which can be expensive and hard to acquire. The Anatomage Table is the latest and greatest technology in health education and Nicolet is proud to provide this opportunity to our students.
