Department of Nursing
The health care industry is changing and nurses play a critical role in the continued quality of patient care. Nurses help others, using skills that blend scientific knowledge with compassion and caring. Few professions offer such a rewarding combination. Nurses are the largest single component of any hospital staff - the primary providers of hospital patient care – and they deliver most of the nation's nursing home care.
The LIU Post School of Health Professions and Nursing offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare nurses to become strong, effective leaders who excel in compassionate care, management and teacher education.
The School offers a Bachelor of Science degree program exclusively for RNs and Master of Science degrees in Family Nurse Practitioner, Advanced Practice Nursing: Clinical Nurse Specialist and Nursing Education. Also offered are post-master’s advanced certificates in Family Nurse Practitioner and Nursing Education. The Master of Science in Nursing Education is designed to meet the shortage of nursing educators and is delivered in an innovative blended format, with nearly half of the courses offered online. The Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Programs in Nursing are fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
We offer individualized attention and small classes to accommodate the needs of the Registered Nurse. Faculty members are available to answer questions and prospective students are encouraged to contact the Department of Nursing to speak with a professor.
