  4. 4. Best nurse practitioner programs in New York The school known as the Hunter- Bellevue School of Nursing stands out as one of the best New York nurse practitioner schools by being not only one of the oldest schools in the country, but also for their mission of ever evolving curriculum for the profession.
  5. 5. Graduates from this school come out fully versed in all phases of medical care, most especially in some critically needed areas of research and treatment that other schools simply do not offer anywhere else.
  6. 6. Around in its current incarnation since 1969, but originally founded in 1943, the Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing has done its best to keep up with current medical needs, especially when it comes to research opportunities, and in educating the next generation of nursing professionals.
  7. 7. It carries the nursing student through its Baccalaureate program with incentives to continue on to become educators and nurse practitioners, and allows its students to gravitate towards any or all of nine specialties, like oncology, neurology, and immunology, especially where it concerns global diseases like AIDS/HIV and H1N1.
  8. 8.  Graduates from this prestigious school have gone on to take leadership positions in primary care facilities, clinics, education and healthcare administration.A good number of them have also served government in positions of patient advocates, and community health activists, with successes in getting research moving forward on medical issues like HIV and autism, to the school’s credit.
  9. 9. A unique slant on nursing education Students attending the College of Wooster in Ohio do not face the traditional nursing curriculum that most colleges and universities offer for nurse practitioner candidates. Instead, this standout of all the Ohio nurse practitioner schools encourages their students to take on a more rounded path of education, that involves liberal arts courses as well as the traditional science and healthcare studies.
  10. 10. This brings about a better understanding of the research process, school administrators feel, rather than just a sterile understanding of the sciences involved.
  11. 11. In addition, required coursework involving the social sciences and humanities will expand their understanding of the ethical, social and economic issues involved with the expansion of healthcare policies by the government, so that by the time they reach the independent study level, they are more prepared to look at all factors in their chosen field, rather than just the clinical side of ethical patient care.
  12. 12. It seems to be working, as doctoral candidates have written and published thesis materials that concern all those factors in healthcare, as well as in medical technology, a concern that echoes proposed healthcare changes. http://www.nursepractitionercareerinformation.com
