Our curriculum is rich with humanities, biological, and social sciences.

“Nazareth prepared me with social, professional, and communication skills that enhanced my ability to take on a leadership role as an RN. The nursing program taught me to be self-directed, resourceful, and sensitive to all cultures and systems, which has proven invaluable,” said Maggie Dawidczyk ’10, who went on to earn her master’s degree as a clinical nurse leader. She works as the nurse manager for the Trauma/General Surgery & Colorectal Surgery unit at Strong Memorial Hospital.
