As the demand for qualified nurses continues to expand, our graduates are sought after for their knowledge, skills, and dedication to improving patient outcomes, quality of care and patient safety. At the School of Health Sciences Nursing Program, you’ll learn the science of compassionate care.
Our baccalaureate program in nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and grants a bachelor of science degree. We can tell you we offer two full-time tracks to get there--BS, (four years) or if you already have an RN, RN to BS (two years)--but really it’s so much more.
The populations you’ll be serving are diverse. So are our students. You’ll learn from each about cultural differences and sensitivities. Respect and understanding starts here.
As a nurse you will be part of healthcare team, and as a student in our nursing program you’ll collaborate with future PTs, OTs, social workers, doctors, and pharmacists at other Touro schools as part of our interprofessional education symposium. Collaboration is the key to quality care.
We encourage both students and graduates to seek opportunities to further their careers in nursing in ways that will impact the health care environment in their communities.
