How CWRU nurses become leaders

CWRU nursing students

At Case Western Reserve University’s Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, we prepare you for leadership in health care—the experience you will have here will have lasting results. 

In the past 10 years, 15 of our nursing faculty members and alumni have been elected to the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame, including two new inductees this summer: Professor Faye Gary, and double alumna Greer Glazer.

Our goal of preparing students for leadership is why you will earn more than double the national average of clinical hours (1,300+), starting in the third week of their first semester. More clinicals means more experience and confidence when you graduate. 

It’s why CWRU has partnered with Cleveland Clinic, consistently ranked a top-5 hospital system by U.S. News & World Report, on our Health Education Campus, where doctors, nurses, dentists and other health care professionals work and learn side-by-side.

And it’s why CWRU nursing alumni have served as leaders of every major nursing organization and are found in leadership positions at organizations across the country and around the world. 

That’s the kind of nurse you’ll be after graduating from CWRU.
