USD Nursing in the News
USD Rapid City Prepares Next Generation of Nurses for the Black Hills Community
The USD Nursing programs empower nurses to play a pivotal role in cutting-edge care. Our program teaches students to use research-supported techniques and create collaborative research projects. We also encourage students to make a difference in the world by participating in service-learning projects, both locally and globally. Each student is assigned an academic faculty advisor and mentor who will connect with the student on a personal level throughout the program to help them achieve more and cultivate a professional identity.
What makes your program unique?
We are the only program in the state that trains future nurses together with 10 health science disciplines and a medical school. This gives students the experience of learning in teams made up of doctors, nurses and other health practitioners, an experience that is becoming increasingly important as nursing continues to expand and evolve.
This interprofessional learning experience makes our students top-notch. Our Bachelor of Science in nursing students surpass both the national and South Dakota National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) averages for passing the NCLEX on the first try.
