One of the hallmarks of The University of Tulsa’s Nursing program is providing clinical experience through simulation and experiential learning. Many of its graduates move on to work at St. John Medical Center, which has recently opened an on-boarding center within TU’s Oxley College of Health Sciences at 1215 S. Boulder Ave.

The partnership between St. John and The University of Tulsa was featured recently in an article in the Tulsa World. The on-boarding center expands the students’ experiences of working with live patients.

“The opportunity to have this on-boarding center in our building is a win-win situation for TU and St. John,” said Dean Robin Ploeger. “Our programs will definitely benefit by having St. John share our space and the possibilities of additional ways our institutions can partner together is exciting.”

TU School of Nursing is part of the Oxley College of Health Sciences which also includes athletic training, communication sciences and disorders, community medicine and kinesiology and rehabilitative sciences. The college enjoys partnerships with the Laureate Institute of Brain Research, University of Oklahoma-Tulsa and Albert Schweitzer Fellowship as well as St. John.
