Adelphi University's College of Nursing and Public Health

Recognized as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education by the National League of Nursing and a Best Nursing School for master's degrees by U.S. News & World Report, Adelphi's College of Nursing and Public Health provides students with a top-rated, comprehensive education grounded in practice, theory and innovation.

With our world-class faculty, state-of-the-art simulation lab and clinical partnerships with top hospitals in the New York area, the College gives undergraduates the skills, knowledge and specialized training needed to launch a successful nursing career.

Additionally, the College's master's degree and doctoral programs prepare registered nurses for leadership positions in the healthcare industry and academia.

Founded in 1942 as the first nursing program on Long Island, the College of Nursing and Public Health currently has 1,658 undergraduates and 375 graduate students. Our home is the Nexus Building on our Garden City, New York, campus. Opened in the fall of 2015, the building houses the Clinical Education and Simulation Lab (CESiL), a 22-bed facility with seven clinical exam rooms, and a fully functioning community health room. Students gain highly realistic experience working with high-fidelity manikins—including a birthing manikin—as well as adult, pediatric, newborn and child manikins.

Our graduate programs are designed to accommodate the busy schedules of working professionals. Graduate courses meet in the evenings and on weekends, and we offer a number of blended programs combining online and on-site classes. Doctoral programs are provided in a Friday executive format.

Our wide range of graduate programs includes:

  • MS in Nursing Administration
  • MS in Nursing Education
  • MS in Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner
  • MS in Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
  • Post-Master's Nursing Certificates
  • PhD in Nursing
  • Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP)

A degree from our College of Nursing and Public Health opens career paths. Ninety-four percent of our 2018 baccalaureate graduates were working or continuing their education within six months of graduation. The same was true for 99 percent of our 2018 graduates with advanced degrees.
