Preparing You for Tomorrow’s Collaborative Healthcare Field Today

In today’s dynamic and ever-changing healthcare environment, high-quality care is provided by individuals who recognize the interdisciplinary nature of healthcare, and who are educated, trained and skilled in collaborative practices. Individuals who provide culturally competent and quality care will help improve outcomes. Additionally, individuals who can manage and lead healthcare organizations will be in demand, as the need for experts in applied health administration grows. To better navigate the healthcare system to ultimately improve outcomes, it is important that communication and collaboration exist among those providing, coordinating, and administering care.

The mission of Northcentral University’s School of Health Sciences is developing leaders who are culturally competent and experts in interprofessional health care practices. Interprofessional Education (IPE) and collaborative practice has been integrated into each of our academic programs. As the complexity of issues impacting patients’ health increases, the School is dedicated to preparing students who are highly competent and skilled at collaborating with others in the field to address patient and industry needs.

Our faculty all hold doctoral degrees, are leaders in their respective disciplines, and experts in teaching interprofessional competencies in healthcare. They will impart the knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes that are key to successfully working across the professions to improve precise health outcomes and systems in unique contexts.

NCU is proud to announce that the School of Health Sciences is closely collaborating with NCU’s School of Education to offer specializations in nursing education. This effort ensures that our nursing curriculum and outcomes align with current health industry trends.
