"The two biggest things I appreciate from my time at Notre Dame are the people/colleagues I met while there and the focus on compassion. Compassionate nursing in my opinion is what differentiates a good nurse from a great one. It provides a safe space for dialogue and a deeper level of care that makes a difference to the patients and their families. Notre Dame spent a large amount of time on compassion throughout my courses, and I appreciate that to this day." - Jennifer Dickensheets '20, a graduate of Notre Dame's first ABSN cohort who was recognized as her hospital's Rookie of the Year in 2021.

Nursing programs at NDMU provide hands-on experience using high-tech mannequins that breathe, blink and even talk using microphones controlled by faculty members watching from the control room. "It gives us the time to get all your nerves out and go through the steps we're taught. There are certain protocols to do certain things and when you get in front of a real patient in the hospital, sometimes you get nervous and forget things," Clark said.
