At the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies “excellence” is more than a word in our rhetoric; it is the standard we live by in our teaching, research practice and mentoring. For over six-decades, The University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies has set the standard of excellence as a pioneer in healthcare education. As a world class center for healthcare education and scholarships, our curriculum integrates evidence based practice, cutting edge simulated learning and real world experience. Unmatched rigorous academic and clinical preparation serves as a catalyst for some of the highest state board passing rates and certification rates in the country. In 2009, The School of Nursing and Health Studies had a 100% Certification Rate for our Certified Nurse Anesthesia, (CRNA), Acute Care and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) programs. Over 94% of our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) students passed the NCLEX at the first examination.
Our faculty includes some of the most talented educators, clinicians and research experts found at any leading university. Outstanding educators and research scholars recognized for their decades of experience, leadership and expertise will be your colleagues. Many students will have the opportunity to participate in local and international faculty research efforts, often leading to publication in international health journals and presentations at leading healthcare conferences around the world.
“Miami’s dynamic cultural mix and our school’s commitment to excellence in education and culturally sensitive care provides an unmatched curriculum and prepares our graduates to work in a variety of healthcare settings with diverse populations,” according to Dr. Nilda “Nena” Peragallo, Dr.PH., R.N., F.A.A.N., Dean and Professor, at the UM School of Nursing and Health Studies.
