Campus Safety

Lakeview College of Nursing strives to maintain a safe environment that is conducive to the learning process.  Campus safety assessment is on-going and on-campus crime is very low to almost nonexistent. A campus safety report is published annually and is available upon request to the President’s Office or within the consumer information section of the college website. 

Lakeview College of Nursing has several security cameras placed in locations throughout the Danville and Charleston campuses and parking lots are monitored by several employees.
