Students in Simulation Lab

Announcement - March 17, 2020: In response to the County of Santa Clara Health Department's Shelter in Place Order, the School of Nursing office is closed while our staff work remotely to assist you.  Therefore, we are not available to answer the phones, but we are reachable by email only at nursing@sjsu.edu. 


All of my classwork was very valuable to me and I can apply it outside of the classroom.
