Nearly every Walsh nursing course requires students to participate in labs and receive clinical experience. Walsh nursing students have access to state-of-the-art computer labs and clinical labs that mirror the hospital environment.

As students move through the nursing program, clinical experiences advance in complexity to match the online instruction.

The shortage of nurses continued to grow and is expected to reach 1.09 million by 2024 (AACN Fact Sheet, Nursing Shortage, 2019). 

According to EMSI, there are 2,528 regional vacancies due to growth and turn over with registered nurses.

A high percentage of Walsh Nursing students pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and go on to practice nursing at local and national healthcare facilities. Walsh students are highly regarded in the clinical setting, and often times a student's clinical experience leads to a full-time job as a registered nurse after graduation.
In addition, Walsh students who want to further their education can easily transition into one of Walsh's Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) or Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs.
