STUDENT SUCCESS SHAPES ALL WE DO

Being non-traditional makes us exceptional. When you join the faculty at WCU, you partner with a team of 1300+ highly motivated, deeply committed professionals who are 100% focused on one goal: seeing each and every student succeed.

The work isn’t always easy. But it is always rewarding. Every day, the work we do improves not only the lives of our students and their immediate families, but the lives of the people in our communities who will benefit from their care in the field.

A TRANSFORMATIONAL APPROACH

Working with colleagues who have set a very high bar is typical at WCU. From the top down, we are committed to delivering the highest caliber transformational education. This means we actively engage our students in the entire learning process, instilling skills such as critical thinking, goal setting, and an ongoing persistence to achieve. Through this we build learning practices that will last a lifetime.

ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL, DOESN’T FIT HERE

Being entirely student-centric translates into an unwavering and unlimited support for you — our faculty — to meet the needs of each individual in a way that serves them best. Through our Shared Governance model, we optimize results by ensuring everyone’s voice is heard. We continually seek ideas, input, and suggestions from our associates. If there’s a tool, resource, avenue, or channel that will make something easier, more accessible, or provide a richer experience for students, WCU is ready to make it a reality.

FORWARD-THINKING DRIVES INNOVATIVE LEARNING

By continuously listening to, learning from, and working with our colleagues, students, and the healthcare community at large, our academic programs are creative, dynamic, and reflective of the ever-evolving workplace. This commitment to student success and the transition to practice is demonstrated by our pre-licensure Nursing Simulation Centers for advanced preparation using high fidelity manikins in a variety of simulated healthcare settings. Simulation education has proven to be an invaluable tool for providing our nursing students with a safe, realistic environment to practice and learn and to improve patient safety and quality of care – and this idea came directly from a member of our faculty.

Another example of this commitment to day one readiness for our graduates is in our Human Anatomy course where the Microsoft Halolens is paired with augmented reality anatomy software as part of our focus on immersive healthcare education. Since the implementation in 2019, we’ve already seen student achievement go up a letter grade due to the introduction of this innovative learning asset.

Furthermore, our Innovation, Research, and Development team works to continuously re- imagine the student educational experience for existing and new academic programs. An instrumental element in this commitment are our faculty who are subject matter experts with a desire to make a difference by bringing ideas forward and providing insights during multiple phases of projects.
