About the College

We produce leaders who define tomorrow’s healthcare.

At the Adelphi College of Nursing and Public Health, we prepare qualified caregivers and leaders who are ready to make an impact in their community. With a strong foundation built on 70 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.
