The College of Nursing is committed to supporting nursing and diagnostic ultrasound students to graduate as close to on-time as possible and to providing the best and safest clinical experiences possible during the unique and unforeseen circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Faculty and staff are working to find solutions at the university, state and national levels. What we are experiencing at Seattle U is not unique—nursing and diagnostic ultrasound students, as well as our graduates working in health care facilities across the country, are facing unprecedented pressures and rising up to overcome countless challenges that threaten the sacred commitment of health professionals to provide care for our communities.
Faculty and staff are all available via email or phone and can set up online meetings as well. Consider CON operations are 'business as usual' and we are available to guide you remotely in the same manner we would when together in Garrand, Chardin, or the CPL.
All students—undergraduate, graduate and professional—will be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and report it to the university prior to arriving on campus for fall quarter. Read more about this.
Report your vaccination status now with the Safe Start Health Check.
