Learn from Health Care Experts

Faculty in the School of Nursing and Health Professions are experts who teach you how to provide the highest level of care, comfort and compassion to patients and families. They challenge and mentor you in small classes, labs and one-on-one advising to help you develop intellectually, professionally and personally. The majority of faculty members are also practicing clinicians at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, which keeps them (and you) up-to-date on innovations in the health care industry.
