Professionalism with Heart

FNP listening to child\'s heart

As a nurse, you know that your role holds a heavy weight in healthcare. Nurses are at the frontlines as advocates and caregivers for the patients. At Touro University, we understand that you are pursuing your professional goals for many reasons, including because you care about what you do. We share that compassion, understand the complexities of delivering patient care, and provide real life experiences and skills that build an even stronger foundation for nurse-to-patient connection.
