Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing
Hunter College of the City University of New York

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing at Hunter College of the City University of New York (CUNY). Our School's history spans over 60 years of preparing nurses for practice in urban environments with diverse populations. Our students, faculty, and staff embrace excellence in education, research, and service. Our outstanding alumni are leaders impacting the health of communities across the national and the globe. We are a public school with a long-standing reputation of academic excellence, affordability, and accessibility, as well as a strong commitment to advancing health and health equity in New York City and beyond.

Our undergraduate programs include the generic and accelerated (second-degree) BS in nursing, and the RN-to-BS in nursing. The Master's degree (MS) program offers specialties in Adult Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist, Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, Community/Public Health Nursing, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Administration/Urban Policy and Leadership (dual-MS degree), and a post-graduate Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner advanced certificate. A new Master's and advanced certificate in Nursing Education planned for fall 2024 is under review by the New York State Education Department. The Evelyn Lauder Community Care Nurse Practitioner program offers advanced clinical training and graduate-level education focused on critical aspects of care, from diagnosis to ordering and interpreting tests to prescribing medication. The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program prepares nurses for advanced practice and leadership positions in health care. In addition, we are excited to be in the final steps of developing a new Nurse Anesthesia Adult Gerontology Acute Care DNP program, which we hope to launch in summer 2024. Our new post-master's PhD in nursing program prepares nurse scientists to conduct research that supports health equity in diverse, urban communities.

On behalf of our outstanding faculty, students, staff, and alumni, I invite you to learn more about our School and programs. We look forward to welcoming you to Hunter!
