East Stroudsburg University’s Department of Nursing and one of our clinical partners, Pocono Medical Center, are pleased with the development of The Dedicated Educational Unit (DEU).

The DEU is a clinical setting that is developed into an optimal teaching/learning environment through the collaborative efforts of nurses, health care team members, management and faculty.

It is designed to provide students with a positive clinical learning environment that maximizes the achievement of student learning outcomes by capitalizing on the expertise of both nurses and faculty. Students are integrated into the workplace in a way that allows them to be an integral part of the workflow and culture so they experience a realistic picture of nursing practice.

At the same time the DEU provides an opportunity for nurses to stay fresh and motivated in their roles as mentors and role models, and a way for faculty to remain grounded in current clinical reality.

Professional Licensure Disclosures and Distance Learning State Authorization: Applicants who are applying to programs that may lead to licensure in states other than Pennsylvania must be aware of the various state professional licensure requirements. Please see ESU's professional licensure disclosures, Evaluation of Conduct Record, and check licensure requirements by occupation and state at CareerOneStop.
