Recommended Posts

Through every change, we remain the same. Clarkson College has not always been a college. Instead, we began in 1888 as a school of nursing—the first in Nebraska. Over the last 125 years, we have established a new campus, expanded our program offerings, and adopted a new name. All the while, we have maintained a commitment to preparing our students to be the best in various realms of health care. This commitment to excellence has and always will remain a defining quality of Clarkson College.
Clarkson College offers a remarkable range of undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs designed to prepare individuals for entry-level and highly advanced roles in various health care disciplines. With the support and oversight of the Executive Leadership Team and the Board of Trustees, the College continually innovates in education and scholarship to ensure that we meet students' needs and the ever-changing field of health care. We are preparing students to professionally provide high quality, ethical, and compassionate health care services.
The Mission of Clarkson College is to prepare students to professionally provide high quality, ethical, and compassionate health care services. With this in mind, program directors, and faculty identified five essential Student Success Skills: Communication, Critical Thinking, Technology, Professional Behavior, and Diversity. These skills are the Institutional Student Learning Outcomes for the College. They are measured within all departments on campus to provide evidence that students possess the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to become successful health care professionals. Student assessment is essential to ensure that our programs meet professional standards and all regional and program-specific accreditation requirements. Assessment data also guides improvements to our programs, enabling us to continue toward student excellence both in academics and through the resources we provide for a comprehensive college experience.

As Clarkson College, the institution is known today, began as a dream of Bishop Robert H. Clarkson in the late 1800s. Bishop Clarkson wanted to see the establishment of a first-rate nursing school in Omaha. The realization of his dream began in 1869 with the opening of Omaha's Good Samaritan Hospital. Seven months after its opening, the hospital was transferred to Bishop Clarkson.
The College added a state-of-the-art simulation lab, equipped with simulated adult and infant patients (mannikins) that display conditions ranging from stagnant to high-fidelity. Clarkson College celebrated our 125th anniversary of preparing students to professionally provide high quality, ethical, and compassionate health care services.
