The new Topeka campus will feature a state-of-the-art nursing skills laboratory like the one pictured above from Rasmussen's Central Pasco (Fla.) campus.

Topeka (December 12, 2022)—Rasmussen University today announced the relocation and expansion of their campus in Topeka, Kan. Construction is underway at the new location at 3712 Southwest Burlingame Road in south Topeka, conveniently situated at the junction of I-470, I-335 and Highway 75, providing easy access for students throughout the region, including commuters from Wichita and Manhattan, Kan.

Rasmussen University offers over 50 career-focused programs across seven areas of study, including Business, Design, Education, Health Sciences, Justice Studies, Nursing and Technology. Many of these programs are fully online, with specific programs and support available residentially. The new Topeka campus location will feature an expanded footprint, large high-tech classrooms, quiet commons and study spaces, and debrief rooms. The new location is seven miles south of Rasmussen University’s current campus, which opened in 2013.

“As we approach our 10th anniversary in the Topeka market, we couldn’t be more pleased to provide students a more innovative and accessible learning environment with this new high-tech campus,” said Jason Allen, campus executive director, Rasmussen University Topeka campus. “We look forward to strengthening our relationships with our existing community members and organizations and growing new clinical and employer relationships.”

Students in the ACEN-accredited1 Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and CCNE-accredited2 Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs will have the opportunity to learn in a new state-of-the-art Nursing Skills laboratory and Simulation Center that features:

  • Three simulation rooms
  • Nursing Station
  • Two control rooms
  • Two debrief rooms
  • Medication room
  • Prep room

“We are committed to remaining future-focused in our curriculum and technology to help prepare our students to be career-ready and to answer the critical call for nurses,” says Jamie Magana, dean of nursing at Rasmussen University. “These new and expanded resources will enhance both the faculty teaching experience and the student learning journey through the development of healthcare and critical-thinking skills, which are essential requirements for today’s healthcare employers.”

Classes at the current Topeka campus will continue at that location until the new campus opens in spring 2023.
