NYU College of Nursing

By Elizabeth Alleva (GSAS ’15)

The NYU College of Nursing has an interesting and complex history. The earliest nursing education courses at NYU included Rural and Industrial Nursing and Public-Health Nursing in the Home of the Tuberculosis. Today, students studying nursing can specialize in fields such as pediatrics, obstetrics, geriatrics, mental health, and acute care.
