At Research College of Nursing, we remain diligent in our protection against coronavirus (COVID-19), and want to provide you with an update about the thoughtful and deliberate steps we’re taking to return to standard operations during this ever-evolving pandemic.

Over the past few months, our HCA Healthcare partner facilities have maintained strict standards while following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The precautions we’ve taken and the new protections put in place make our campus and clinical facilities among the safest possible places to receive healthcare education.

As always, the health and safety of our students, employees and communities is our top priority.

The spring semester at Research College of Nursing will resume on January 26, 2021, one week later than originally scheduled.

Academic coursework will continue in an online format.

BSN and NP students should plan to remain in the Kansas City area for clinicals, labs, simulation and on-site testing. MSN students enrolled in the online NE and EPHL programs will receive additional guidance from your graduate faculty.

Out of safety precautions, “Spring Break” will be replaced with a delayed semester start.

Spring break, originally scheduled for March 15-19, will not be held in an effort to reduce spread of the virus as the result of travel. We have established enhanced protections throughout our college campus to create a safe environment for everyone who walks through our doors. We appreciate your flexibility and consideration.

*We make every effort to ensure our website information remains up to date. As specific guidelines and policies continue to evolve, please check your Research email for updated information on enhanced safety protections.
