We produce leaders who define tomorrow’s healthcare.

With a strong foundation built on more than 75 years of nursing education, we’ve developed a new vision. The College of Nursing and Public Health, renamed in June 2013, focuses on issues within population health, and has combined our hallmark nursing programs with relevant healthcare programs to tackle today’s health issues and those in the future. Our students benefit from a holistic approach that focuses on community intervention, health maintenance and management, and environmental health.

More than 8,000 Adelphi alumni have embraced our small class sizes and strong collaboration with faculty, and our graduates are working as nurses in private and hospital settings; as administrators and educators; and in organizations as managers, researchers, educators, advocates and directors.

I knew that if I didn’t pursue my Master’s degree that I would never truly be satisfied with my professional development. After obtaining my BS at Adelphi University, I knew that the only place for me to obtain my Master’s was at Adelphi. The Master’s in Nursing Administration was the choice for me as I was already working in management, and this degree will certainly open doors for me moving forward in my career!
