Alliant International University Announces New Campus and School of Nursing & Health Sciences in Phoenix

PHOENIX, March 20, 2023 ~ Alliant International University has announced its expansion to Phoenix with the launch of the new School of Nursing and Health Sciences. Located in the midtown property known as Park Central, the state-of-the-art campus will help meet demand for registered nurses in one of the nation's fastest-growing markets.

Andy Vaughn, President & CEO of the Alliant International University System, said, "Phoenix is a vibrant, fast-growing community with a critical need for registered nurses, and was simply a natural choice for Alliant's first expansion outside California. We look forward to helping meet this demand for nurses with our School of Nursing and Health Sciences, while helping train the next generation of culturally competent healthcare professionals to serve Arizona patients."

The School of Nursing and Health Sciences is Alliant's sixth and newest school. It will initially offer two programs: Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and a direct-entry Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). Alliant is an accredited, professional-practice university with a history of academic excellence that stretches over a century. Existing graduate program offerings at five California-based campuses and online include psychology, education, business management, forensic studies, and law.

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said she was thrilled to welcome Alliant International University's new School of Nursing and Health Sciences to Phoenix. She added that Alliant is a perfect fit for the iconic Park Central property which is becoming a growing hub for healthcare education, life sciences, and research. This expansion will provide quality postsecondary education in their community while helping meet the healthcare needs of families in Phoenix and across Arizona.

Alliant follows a model that pairs scholarship with practice. Students will achieve vital nursing competencies via small class sizes and the use of the latest technological tools such as simulation bays and clinical beds. Additionally, Alliant students will gain hands-on clinical experience through partnerships with Banner Health, the Arizona Department of Health Services, and other leading area hospitals and healthcare institutions. This innovative collaboration will serve students, patients, and the community.

Heidi Sanborn from Arizona Nurses Association (AzNA) said that like much of the country Arizona faces twin challenges - an aging population requiring greater healthcare at same time as large portion of nursing workforce approaches retirement - making Alliant International University's arrival in Arizona timely to help meet state's healthcare needs today and tomorrow.

On Thursday 30th March Alliant will celebrate grand opening ceremony at its new Phoenix campus which will include tours medical simulations among other activities.
