Imagine being a nurse who is not only a caregiver but a problem-solver, one who combines medical expertise with an awareness of global health issues. Imagine the rewards of learning how to care for patients from different cultures in a diverse population. This is Nazareth’s nursing degree program—designed for the complexity and challenge of 21st-century health care.
At Nazareth our goal is to prepare professional nurse generalists who not only possess an in-depth knowledge of nursing, but also provide culturally congruent nursing care to individuals, families, groups, and communities in and across all environments. Our curriculum is rich with humanities, biological, and social sciences as well as the teaching of a transcultural nursing framework.
Students from the School of Health and Human Services’ nursing department have joined the Community High Blood Pressure Collaborative, a long-term, regionwide project designed to lower the incidence of high blood pressure in the Rochester area.
