Supporting and improving the health of diverse communities

The School of Nursing & Health studies offers four degree programs; A Master of Nursing, a Master of Community Health & Social Justice, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies. As a school, we are committed to advancing social justice, health and the nursing practice through innovative pedagogy, research and community engagement.

The health of individuals, communities and the globe are inextricable. Whether as a nurse, a global health worker or a patient, understanding one’s position and contributions to a healthier world is the goal of health literacy. A social justice approach to health literacy requires the critical thinking, writing and community engagement skills that are central to the mission of UW Bothell. The interdisciplinary faculty in the School of Nursing & Health Studies create unique educational approaches grounded in inclusive learning environments that are accessible, oriented to life-long learning and based on the highest professional standards.
