It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School of Nursing, Hunter College of the City University of New York (CUNY). The School’s history spans over 60 years of preparing nurses for practice in urban environments with diverse populations. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni embrace excellence in education, research, and service. We are a public school, with a strong commitment to health care service in New York City and beyond.

Our undergraduate educational programs include the generic and accelerated (second-degree) BS in Nursing, and the RN-to-BS in Nursing. The Master’s program offers specialties in Adult/Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist, Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, Community/Public Health Nursing, Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and a post-graduate Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner advanced certificate. The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program prepares nurses for advanced practice and leadership positions in health care. In the near future we will offer a PhD in Nursing and a DNP-Nurse Anesthesia program.

On behalf of our outstanding faculty, students, staff, and alumni, I invite you to learn more about us. We look forward to your contacts and questions.
