Marian University Bash: Building Careers in Healthcare + Construction
Marian University recently held a demolition bash to welcome its nursing program to its new home.
🏢 CATCH UP QUICK: Formerly located in the Center for Health Professions building in downtown Fond du Lac, the nursing program will move to the main campus, occupying the first and second floors of the Stayer Center. The relocation brings nursing students closer to core-curricular science courses in the nearby Ridenour Science Center.
👩⚕️👨⚕️ THE BIG PICTURE: The move to the Stayer Center introduces state-of-the-art simulation laboratories, modern classrooms and dedicated study areas, all aimed at enriching the educational journey for nursing and health professions students. With a legacy spanning almost sixty years and a remarkable NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) passing rate in the state of Wisconsin at 96.67 percent, the centralization of resources underscores the university's commitment to excellence in nursing education.
👩⚕️👷♂️👨⚕️👷♀️ THE EVEN BIGGER PICTURE: The demolition bash was a dual celebration, bringing together both nursing and construction management students. This event marked the inauguration of Marian University's Construction Management Program, symbolizing progress and breakthroughs for both academic paths.
💪📚 WHY IT MATTERS: Marian University's demolition bash signals another layer of academic excellence for its Nursing Program. With cutting-edge facilities and strategic proximity to essential courses, the university continues to nurture aspiring nurses and health professionals. This transition also exemplifies Marian University's commitment to diverse education, as showcased by the dual celebration involving the Construction Management Program.
🚀 The future holds promising opportunities for both programs as they thrive in their new environments.
