About Us

Morehead State University first began offering an associate degree in nursing in 1971, and since then, the program has grown to become one of the premiere nursing programs in the state of Kentucky. Whether you are a traditional college student interested in a career in nursing, or a working professional looking to advance your education, Morehead State has the classes to fit your needs. With on-campus, regional campus and online options, Morehead State’s Department of Nursing makes it easy for students from all walks of life to obtain a degree while maintaining a busy schedule.

Our Facilities

In the summer of 2010, the Department of Nursing moved into its new home at the Center for Health, Education & Research (CHER) building. Located on Second Street adjacent to St. Claire Regional Medical Center, the $26 million, 44-bed facility contains classrooms and laboratories to provide you with traditional lecture-based instruction and real-world experience. You will have the unique opportunity to learn in the department’s Simulation Through Advanced Technology (STAT) Nursing labs, which employ low, medium and high-fidelity manikins that simulate symptoms and react to treatment. The use of this advanced technology will give you hands-on experience to prepare you for a rewarding career after you graduate. The CHER building also houses a testing and multimedia center to help students prepare for national certification exams.

Specialty Units

Nursing students at Morehead State will have the chance to study in a number of specialty units, including:

  • Maternity/Obstetrics, where our manikin Noelle gives birth 
  • Intensive Care Unit for critical cases 
  • Pediatric Critical Care Unit for our child clients 
  • Transition from a home care setting to a chapel to a patient interview room
