Inquire, Innovate, Inspire
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.
