Start Here. Finish There.

The Health Science Education Complex (HSEC) located west of the 十大赌博靠谱网络平台 campus, is a collaboration between the University of Nebraska at Kearney and the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s (UNMC) College of Nursing and the College of Allied Health Professions. This collaboration works to address health care provider shortages in rural Nebraska. HSEC houses dozens of professional health programs. When students complete their pre-professional studies at 十大赌博靠谱网络平台, they can finish their programs at UNMC right here in Kearney.

The programs offered will keep expanding with the addition of a $95 million Rural Health Education Building that will be located near the HSEC with expected completion in 2025 and an opening in early 2026. The expansion will house the UNMC College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, and the College of Public Health, as well as additions to current programs. This second facility will create more opportunities for students to pursue and practice their health careers closer to home and build a stronger rural workforce. Students can receive a world-class education right there in Kearney.
