School of Nursing

For more than a century, Columbia University School of Nursing has helped transform the nursing profession as clinicians, nurse scientists, and leaders in health policy, both nationally and worldwide. Our innovative curriculum and research programs continue to set and raise the standard for graduate nursing education.

Columbia Nursing is consistently ranked as one of the world’s leading nursing schools, with a range of specialized graduate degree offerings. Our academic programs allow students to master all facets of nursing care at the highest level, preparing them to excel within an interdisciplinary health care team. Our rigorous training in both classroom and clinical settings offer unique opportunities that help shape the next generation of nurse scientists and care providers.

Columbia Nursing's steady position as a leader in funding from the NIH and other prestigious federal agencies demonstrates our commitment to research and scholarship.

We seek to instill a sense of global citizenship and ethical responsibility in our students and prepare them for the vast global health challenges of today and tomorrow.

As part of Columbia University Irving Medical Center and the Washington Heights community, Columbia Nursing prepares students for careers that improve health and health care here in New York City, across the nation, and around the world.
