Sinclair School of Nursing on the rise

An impressive 80% of our Sinclair School of Nursing (SSON) graduates from 2021 stayed in the state. By remaining in Missouri, our grads address a critical nursing shortage while supporting the health and economy of local communities.

Earlier this week, I visited the new School of Nursing building to talk with their dedicated faculty and staff. After admiring the great view of Jesse Hall, I shared an update on the university and answered questions. We also discussed our efforts to recruit and support community members from many different backgrounds, and other opportunities for growth.

Students now have full access to the new state-of-the-art nursing education facility, dedicated in October. With seven intensive care simulation rooms, a 14-bed skills and assessment lab and a research suite, students have what they need to practice great patient care.

Interest in attending the SSON remains strong, as does industry demand for our alumni. With high placement rates and a top-notch facility, the SSON is beginning a new era of excellence.
