College of Nursing and Public Health

school of nursing

It’s an opportunity to think and work at the highest level.

A graduate education at the Adelphi University College of Nursing and Public Health emphasizes the development of scholarly, critical thinkers who have the ability to translate knowledge into practice. Through the process of critical inquiry, our students learn to understand the nature of complex human and environmental systems and learn to develop strategies for effective intervention. Research concepts and skills are subsets of critical inquiry and are considered integral to the roles of nurse practitioner, nursing administrator, nurse educator and the emergency-disaster nurse manager.

Our master’s curriculum provides the knowledge base and experience needed to evaluate research designs and methodologies and to utilize research findings. We assume that each student has the potential to be self-directed. Our curriculum is structured to maximize student independence, personal development, professional accountability and continuous learning.

The School of Nursing holds membership in the Council of Baccalaureate and Higher Degree programs of the National League for Nursing, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, and the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties.
