“We like to hire Nazareth graduates. By learning to collaborate with colleagues in other disciplines and put the client at the center, Nazareth’s students are at the leading edge of the evolution in human services to be more integrated and person-driven. The ultimate benefit is to people with disabilities or injuries, who get better faster.”
