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.

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.
