The health care industry is changing and nurses play a critical role in the continued quality of patient care. Nurses help others, using skills that blend scientific knowledge with compassion and caring. Few professions offer such a rewarding combination. Nurses are the largest single component of any hospital staff—the primary providers of hospital patient care—and they deliver most of the nation's nursing home care. The demand for nurses is projected to grow by 19 percent before 2022, faster than the average for all occupations, according to the United States Department of Labor.

The best way to prepare nurses for modern careers within healthcare environments where doctors, nurses, nutritionists, and others work side-by-side is to collaborate with professionals in those disciplines before that career even begins. Through emphasis on technology, simulated health care environments, and clinical rotations, as well as expertise and mentorship of the departments of Biomedical Science, Health Sciences, Health Information Management, Medical Imaging, Social Work, and Nutrition, students in the Department of Nursing are prepared to take on a plethora of patient care challenges as vital players on teams of specialized healthcare professionals.

The LIU Post School of Health Professions and Nursing offers Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Programs in Nursing that are fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency, contributing to the improvement of the public's health. CCNE ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing.
