Students in the CCER lab with Dr. Kathleen Kafel.

Welcome to the Center for Clinical Education and Research!

Nursing and exercise health science are complex programs of study that include rigorous courses, coupled with clinically challenging practicums and internships.  The staff of the CCER are dedicated to promoting student engagement and maximizing potential as students prepare to transition into practice.

The center houses the Nursing Lab, Exercise & Health Science Lab, Simulation Suite, examination rooms and a computer lab. The Computer Lab is located in the CCER for all Nursing and EHS students and is open from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday; all computers include NCLEX-RN 4000 software with practice questions. In addition to the resources available at Healey Library, the CCER offers the opportunity for students to gain access to popular textbooks and study guides that are available for borrowing.

The CCER serves students through individualized academic and social support.  A close partnership between our staff and Student Services has proven beneficial to students committed to their success in the nursing program.  When connected with appropriate resources, students learn effective academic habits and experience a high rate of success.
