Student Experience

Our students hail from across the globe and every state in the U.S. to pursue a nursing education at the University of Rochester. Many students balance full-time jobs and families, while learning new ways of thinking and practicing. 


Today's constantly changing health care environment requires nurses to quickly adapt and evolve in order to provide the best care for patients. Here, you'll learn the skills and tools to become a better clinician, leader, educator, and researcher. You will help us lead the largest and most trusted profession as a UR Nurse.
