As dramatic changes occur in the health delivery system, schools of nursing must prepare their students to meet the challenges of ever changing responsibilities.

Seven part-time Registered Nurses
Mary Archer, RN

Carol Di Bella RN

Felippe Ferreira, RN

Clinical Instructional Laboratories
Nursing professors have available to them seven spacious, well equipped labs in which to teach their students clinical skills. These rooms include hospital, geriatric long term care and home/ community settings
These lab sessions allow the Queensborough Nursing students to receive supervised help as they practice skills taught to them by their clinical professors.
We offer QCC nursing students, on a space available basis, quiet areas where they can study and/or work on their presentations and papers. Also available to them are various resources, including current nursing journals, textbooks, equipment and visual aids.
