Find Your Calling in the School of Nursing
In the School of Nursing, you’ll turn a desire to care for others into the knowledge and skills to advance research and improve lives.
Virtual Decide Day is all about exploring these options, asking questions and connecting with WVU students, faculty and staff who can help you find your place here.
Where You’ll Learn and Discover
Tour Health Sciences
Find out where to study, where you’ll learn and where you can grab a cup of coffee on this quick tour with Dr. Clay Marsh, vice president and executive dean for Health Sciences.
Thanks to the David and Jo Ann Shaw STEPS center, a state-of-the-art center for experiential learning with simulation, our health sciences students are safer and smarter before encountering patients in everyday and critical care situations.
Health Sciences North: Pylons Lobby
Located outside the Health Sciences Learning Center and Library, this lobby is a convenient, comfortable place for health sciences students to study and socialize between classes. Cavanaugh’s coffee shop, located in the corner of the lobby, offers Starbucks coffee, juice, blended drinks, and other beverages and snacks.
