Our programs range from those designed for applicants with a bachelor's degree in other fields who want to enter the nursing profession to BS, MS, PhD, and post-PhD programs for nurses and other health care professionals who want to reach the next level in their careers, to both nursing and non-nursing master's programs for people who want to be prepared to assume leadership, research, and educator roles accross the healthcare spectrum.

What makes us stand out from other nursing schools? We wrote the book on the "unification model" that blends practical experience and research into every aspect of education. We teach and integrate evidence-based clinical practice across all levels of our nursing curriculum. Our research environment is intervention-oriented and stays close to a practice-focused emphasis on social and contextual elements affecting health and wellbeing. And, because we're part of the University of Rochester Medical Center with their integrated health care delivery system, students enjoy nearly unlimited opportunity to learn state-of-the-art practice in the setting and specialty of their choice.
