Why ECPI University Nursing?

What makes ECPI University's College of Nursing Programs Different?

Technology is in our DNA.
We are built on Technology and integrate it into our Nursing programs. Staying ahead of the curve is the key to success.

High Engagement Labs

When you attend class, ECPI has one goal in mind - to prepare you to become a nurse. Whether you are interacting with life-like patient simulators, learning about the endocrine system on our Anatomage (digital cadaver) table, or looking inside of a heart in virtual reality, we bring you as close as possible to the action.


The world shut down briefly, so we built a new one. Our team of developers created a fully operational 5 story virtual hospital that you can access from anywhere. Learn about and explore the ins-and-outs of how hospitals operate as well as the responsibilities of employees working there.

Virtual Simulation

Nursing simulation is foundational to nursing. We created a virtual environment within the eHospital that allows students to provide patient care. Each phase of Virtual Simulation allows students to interact with patients as they would in the health care environment.
