School of Nursing & Health Professions

Focused on creating innovative leaders for an ever-changing health care system, Brandman University’s Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing and Health Professions utilizes a blend of advanced technologies and immersive learning.

Inquire, Innovate, Inspire

Undergraduate courses are taught by practicing RNs and graduate courses are taught by practicing, nationally certified, advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), who are accomplished experts in online education. Our programs are designed to combine online coursework with direct application through 3- to 4-day immersion sessions held at our high-tech Immersive Learning and Simulation Center. Whether you are an RN looking to achieve your BSN, an experienced nurse reaching for an advanced practice level through a DNP, or a post-doctoral certificate to learn a new nurse practitioner specialty, Brandman has a program to help you move to the next stage of your career.

Mission

To provide dynamic education that focuses on inquiry and innovative practice relevant to an ever-changing healthcare system.

It was a big sacrifice with two daughters in college and it takes persistence and patience. Brandman is very supportive of students. They push their students in the right direction and motivate them. It was a positive experience and coming from a family of nurses, that’s saying a lot.

...it was always my goal to become a Nurse Practitioner. I wanted to mentor other nurses who were new to the profession and share my experiences with them.

The ILSC provides computer-managed manikins and three-dimensional virtual reality environments using standardized patients for high fidelity learning.

What is a typical day of immersion like?

A day at immersion is a full day of activity.  Days run from approximately 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and time is spent in group demonstrations from faculty and other experts, small group discussions, hands-on skills learning and lab experiences.  There is also time for networking and some fun!  Academic and Financial Aid advisors are also available for individualized in-person meetings.
