School of Nursing

Giving back to our program allows us to prepare students for a highly demanding, but rewarding career. Financial support for the School of Nursing goes to enhancing education in the classroom and in the clinical setting, offering students experiential learning opportunities. This learning helps to better prepare students for clinical practice. In the classroom, donations will help facilitate the additional technology needed to provide enhanced learning opportunities and incorporate emerging and innovative teaching strategies. For example, telehealth technology allows students in the classroom to engage with students in the simulation laboratory, allowing students to more actively participate in an unfolding case study.


In clinical learning, simulations are realistic patient care scenarios that provide a safe environment for hands-on learning. These simulations cover the spectrum of our undergraduate on-campus baccalaureate clinical nursing classes. One of our recent graduates was caring for an adult patient that was admitted to the hospital with Diabetic Ketoacidosis. She stated that she knew how to care for the patient and prioritize care because of the similarities to the simulated learning experience in which she participated in the clinical lab setting. This is one example of the many students who have benefitted from our state of the art simulation resources.


In addition, funds to the School of Nursing provide continuing education workshops for faculty. These workshops help keep faculty on the cutting edge of nursing education. Because of generous donations, the School of Nursing recently was privileged to host an exam writing workshop with Dr. Linda Caputi on campus at Ball State University. This allowed faculty a learning opportunity without the additional expense of traveling to a conference. Faculty who participated in the workshop were thankful for the opportunity to engage with an expert in the field.


Donating to the School of Nursing will allow you to impact the future nursing workforce and continue the excellent tradition of nursing education at Ball State University.
