We are proud of our current and past nursing students at Hartwick.  But what does it mean to study nursing at Hartwick?  It means knowing the world, not just the job. We have more than 65 years of experience in educating nurses. Our majors acquire more than scientific and technical competencies:  your liberal arts education will give you the critical thinking, decision making and leadership skills the profession demands. It means learning by doing-in the real world. In rural and urban clinics, you'll have clinical experiences that mean something - for you, and for the community.

You'll be supervised by clinically-competent faculty, and you'll learn by doing. That's the way we do it at Hartwick. It means getting experience, half way around the world. The January Term immersion course, "Transcultural Nursing" in Jamaica, West Indies, teaches junior nursing students first-hand about Jamaican culture and the impact of politics, economics, and globalization on healthcare and healing in the clinic and community while working side-by-side with local healthcare workers.  Most of all, studying nursing at Hartwick means success.
