What happens when nursing meets art?

At CWRU’s Frances Bolton School of Nursing, there are so many creative ways to learn.

For example, take the 80 undergraduate nursing students in Irena Kenneley’s microbiology class, who met regularly with about 17 students from the Cleveland Institute of Art. They collaborated on fiber art, paintings, metal etchings and a large sculpture—all interpreting health issues from HIV to bed bugs.

The resulting gallery show, called “Infecting the Human Experience,” was open to the public. Read more and watch the video.

At CWRU, students draw on the wide experiences and interests of our faculty members. They gain the visual and emotional intelligence they need to become a highly successful nurse. And they start clinical placements in the first month of your first year—the earliest of any program in the nation.
