What do we mean by “Workplace Ready”?

Our students are workplace ready because they are adaptive, collaborative, and visionary. All our degree programs center around these three core competencies. Behind each is a rigorous and enriching academic experience that is challenging, yet rewarding, which leads you to be the kind of health care professional that employers value.

Health care is constantly and rapidly evolving.

Individual Perspective

Applying classroom learning to real world experiences.


Health care is increasingly focused on a continuum of care.

Team Perspective

Working in interdisciplinary groups.

Health care impacts people on a personal, local, and global scale.

Global Perspective

Participating in community-based experiences with diverse groups.

Travel Opportunities

Expand your worldview and become a global leader. Valpo nursing and health professions students make a difference in local and global communities through abundant service-learning trips to locations such as Nicaragua, Costa Rica, China, Thailand, India, Tanzania, and Ireland. You’ll have the unique opportunity to visit hospitals and health care facilities around the world, exploring the differences and similarities between varying practices while strengthening your cross-cultural communication skills.
