Nazareth's diverse health and human services academic programs and patient clinics in our newly renovated, expanded building provide the best learning environment and clinic spaces among northeast colleges of similar size.
Interprofessional: Our institute's design fits our focus on learning and working together across professions — nursing, speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, art and music therapy, speech and hearing services, and social work. Students learn to work effectively as a team, communicate well, navigate across different cultures, and solve problems.
Research: Our facilities support student-faculty research and development to improve health outcomes and clinical practice.
High-quality community service: Patient-centered, evidence-based services are offered at no cost or low cost, across the lifespan. Students focus on quality improvement.

“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.”
