Letter from the Dean

Welcome to the School of Nursing and Health Sciences at La Salle University!

The School of Nursing and Health Sciences is located in St. Benilde Tower on West Campus. St. Benilde Tower—originally Wister Tower of the Germantown Hospital Campus—houses our school’s classrooms, labs, clinics, and offices.

The mission of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences is to provide scientifically-based education programs to prepare students as proficient, caring health professionals engaged in evidence-based practice, advocacy, service, and life-long learning.

We accomplish our mission through four highly acclaimed programs:

  • Communication Sciences and Disorders
  • Nursing
  • Nutrition
  • Public Health

Within these programs, we offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in addition to certificates and eLearning opportunities. I urge you to visit the website of our programs and contact the program chairs for more information. Dedicated, caring, and responsive faculty and staff ensure students’ academic experiences are of the highest quality.

Our programs are offered not only on the main campus but also at the Bucks County Center and we maintain partnerships with both the Frank J. Tornetta School of Anesthesia and the Clarke School for Hearing and Speech and with our advisory boards, who provide wisdom, guidance, and advice to the School and our programs.
