The graduate programs in Northern Kentucky University’s College of Health Professions are designed to train health-care professionals using educational models that focus upon the integration of knowledge, skills, and professional behaviors. The college is primarily focused on improving the overall health of the people and communities in Northern Kentucky in particular and the commonwealth of Kentucky and the tri-state region in general.

The graduate programs are grounded in evidence-based practice with the intention of preparing health-care providers for meaningful and productive careers through the creation of strong ties between community, clinical, and academic partners.  The graduate faculty are mindful of maintaining a collaborative environment that facilitates excellence in scholarship, practice, leadership, and continuing professional education.  Two centers within the College - the Nurse Advocacy Center for the Underserved (NACU) and the Nurse Interdisciplinary Research Collaborative (NIRC) - are joined by its three primary departments of Nursing, Advanced Nursing Studies, and Allied Health, in cooperative efforts to address pervasive health problems in the Northern Kentucky communities and improve the overall health of residents of commonwealth and the tri-state region.

The college reserves the right to change the program of study as needed to fulfill state approval, regional and national accreditation, and other certification organizations.
