About the School Undergraduate and Graduate Nursing Programs

Barry University nursing programs respect diversity, multiple realities, and individual choices of all persons. We place value on the life of all human beings within the context of family, community, and society. It is from this philosophy that we develop curriculum and programs that support future nurses, nurse practitioners and nursing leaders.


Graduate Nursing programs embrace the core commitments and values expressed in the University Mission, which includes providing the highest academic standards in graduate and professional education. Both programs provide educational experiences, which are transformative and inclusive by building on the knowledge, skills, and values of the Baccalaureate and/or master’s prepared nurse.


Barry University has over sixty-five years of education excellence in preparing professional nurses.
