The Austin Peay State University campus is a 200 acre suburban setting. The School of Nursing is located in the McCord building on the southwest side of campus. School of Nursing resources include a computer lab with a variety of computer assisted instructional programs and video discs, a nursing skills lab, and various audiovisual materials.
Student clinicals are offered in a variety of settings, including community based and acute care sites, and involve many different types of client populations. Clinicals sites are selected to provide the student with an optimum experience, which may necessitate a drive to clinical sites in surrounding cities and counties, such as in Nashville. The purpose of clinical experiences is to prepare the student to practice as a beginning and future oriented professional nurse, in their choice of a variety of different kinds of health care facilities. Nursing students are responsible for providing their own transportation to each clinical site.
