Welcome from the Dean


Welcome to the Division of Nursing and Health Sciences, offering degrees in nursing, athletic training, and physical therapy. The commitment of our outstanding faculty, in a University dedicated to “education in the Franciscan Tradition” provides an ideal environment for study to prepare health care professionals. The Franciscan values of academic excellence, integrity, social responsibility, respect for all creation, and service to others are the foundation of the helping professions. 


If you are looking for a college where you will be known by name; where the dean, program directors, and faculty are accessible and approachable; where additional tutoring and support is readily available to students; Neumann University is the ideal location for beginning or continuing your education in one of the available health care programs.


I hope that you consider Neumann University to study athletic training, nursing, or physical therapy to begin your health care career, or to expand your practice through graduate study. The information provided in the Division of Nursing and Health Sciences pages and links provide a glimpse of what Neumann University has to offer, but we hope that you will contact the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid to arrange for a campus visit or to receive additional information.
