The graduate programs in Northern Kentucky University’s College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) 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 particularly the commonwealth of Kentucky and the tri-state region.

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.  CHHS houses the Nurse Advocacy Center for the Underserved (NACU), the Nurse Interdisciplinary Research Collaborative (NIRC), and the NKU Training & Development Center. The college’s four schools - Nursing, Allied Health, Social Work, and Kinesiology, Counseling, and Rehabilitative Sciences - cooperatively address pervasive health problems to improve the overall quality of life of residents throughout the 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.
