Hunter College's Schools of the Health Professions comprises two prestigious units of the college: The Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing and the School of Health Sciences.

Nursing education began at Hunter in 1943, when courses for registered nurses were added to it's curriculum. In 1955, a four- year collegiate program that was a pioneer for its time - the Hunter College Program in Nursing - was launched. When the Bellevue School of Nursing closed in 1969, Hunter absorbed it to create the Hunter - Bellevue School of Nursing. Hunter’s Institute of Health Sciences, dedicated to the educational preparation of a range of health care professionals, opened its doors on East 106th Street in 1968. Six years later, the Institute became the School of Health Sciences and moved downtown to join the nursing school at the Brookdale campus.

The City University of New York at Hunter College does not discriminate in any of its programs on the basis of race, sex, color, creed, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam era.
