At the Wayne State University College of Nursing, we understand the challenges facing today's cities and are dedicated to addressing them. Our location in Detroit positions us to prepare nurses uniquely qualified to care for urban populations, help reduce health disparities and promote health in local communities. Here, students receive an immersive educational experience where they learn from faculty experts and provide care to people in clinics, hospitals and health care facilities throughout Detroit. They work alongside our researchers and partners to further nursing science, and leave equipped to enter a workforce in need of their diversity, knowledge and passion.
