School of Nursing
Florence Nightingale wrote in her Notes on Nursing, “Unless we are making progress in nursing every year, every month, every week, take my word for it, we are going back.” Oakland's School of Nursing (SON) believes this tenet and it shows through our quality curriculum and variety of simulation and clinical experiences. The School of Nursing is one of the largest state supported nursing programs in Michigan. More than 95% of our graduates find employment in the tri-county area, contributing to the area's economy. Our clinical partners in education provided 268 clinical rotation sites for undergraduates this past academic year as well as 360 one-on-one preceptor experiences for students to solidify their clinical experience. Our students, in turn, are able to watch, learn and practice in the best hospitals and clinical sites in the state.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing/master's degree in nursing/Doctor of Nursing Practice and post-graduate APRN certificate at Oakland University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation).
