Established in 1948 as South Florida’s first baccalaureate nursing program, the School of Nursing and Health Studies has a rich tradition of preparing health professionals to provide compassionate, quality care to local and global communities.

Located at the crossroads of the Caribbean and the Americas, the University of Miami provides a unique multicultural environment in which to study and practice.  The school serves some of the most multiethnic, multicultural, health at-risk communities in the nation.

Our nursing program is affiliated with a major academic medical center; a private, acute care hospital; and a public teaching hospital system. The school enjoys a unique network of over 170 clinical partners, including:

The new, state-of-the-art M. Christine Schwartz Center for Nursing and Health Studies provides nursing and health science students with a world-class learning environment at the heart of the beautiful Coral Gables Campus.

The 2017 opening of the school’s new education-based Simulation Hospital Advancing Research & Education (SHARE™) provides real-world impact in an educational setting. The five-story facility, featuring an emergency department, outpatient clinic, NICU, operating rooms and more, will transform lives and communities to make the world a safer place.

International study opportunities afford students hands-on experience with global health issues in Chile, Haiti, Mexico, and Spain.

Students at the school are educated by renowned scholars and exposed to cutting-edge research.  Over half of the school’s faculty are engaged in collaborative research projects in areas ranging from health disparities and minority health to HIV/AIDS, substance abuse and intimate partner violence, maternal-child health, and patient safety.

Freshmen accepted at UM are ensured progression into the upper division of the BSN providing that they complete the pre-requisite coursework and maintain the requisite GPA.
