Nursing

Enter the exciting world of health care by becoming a registered nurse at Montana Tech.

Montana Tech is one of only two public universities in the state to offer a pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

The Montana Tech Nursing Program offers two degrees:

Our students study in the newly renovated Health Sciences Building (HSB), which conveniently includes all nursing courses and faculty under one roof. The HSB also includes a brand new state-of-the-art simulation lab.

Montana Tech Nursing graduates regularly earn some of the highest NCLEX pass rates in the state and enjoy a 100-percent placement rate with high starting salaries. As of May 2014, the mean starting salary for nurses in Montana was $61,810, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.


Our Philosophy

The Montana Tech Nursing Program believes the profession of nursing is best served through highly educated members who continually strive to broaden their knowledge and expertise to meet the increasing demands of the health care environment. We believe in a holistic approach to nursing education, including sensitivity to the physical, psychological, spiritual and sociocultural needs of the individual, family and community. Further, we strive for a continually evolving curriculum that reflects best practice.

GERT - Age Simulation Suit 

nursing-suit.jpg

Montana Tech nursing students will be wearing this suit, GERT, around campus. GERT is an age simulation suit. The age simulation suit GERT consists of a set of separate components. By their interaction an effect very similar to the impairments of the sensomotoric skills in old age can be achieved.

Especially the age-related walk and the changed grip ability are simulated very close to reality by the age simulation suit GERT. But also the increased mental load and the soaring movement uncertainty will be understandable when wearing the age simulation suit GERT.

Those who tried the age simulation suit GERT will have a better understanding of elderly persons’ behaviour. The age simulation suit GERT is therefore very applicable in the apprenticeship and advanced training of experts but also in the development of products and services for elderly people
