Sciences infirmières et sciences de la santé

Training Tomorrow’s Health Care Professionals

Nurses operate as an integral part of an open system within the community in which the human being is perceived as a whole being with biopsychosocial and spiritual needs.

Le programme de licence en sciences infirmières de l'Université de Bethléem a été créé en 1976. Son objectif principal est de former des infirmières professionnelles pour répondre aux besoins de santé et de soins infirmiers du peuple palestinien, quels que soient sa religion, son sexe ou son origine socio-économique. Les diplômés sont prêts à collaborer avec d'autres membres d'une équipe de santé afin de fournir des soins de santé de qualité dans la communauté.

Nursing and Health Sciences at BU includes the Department of Nursing and Midwifery and the Department of Physical and Occupational Therapy with a Bachelor of Science degrees in Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.

Meet Ameer

Physical Therapy Major

Ameer is a third-year student who majors in Physical Therapy. He lives just north of Hebron, in the primarily agricultural town of Halhul which is about 11 miles southwest of Bethlehem.

As Ameer sees it, “Bethlehem university provides the best teaching staff, high practical skills, and a broad base of information to enlighten students throughout their 4-year studying journey.” Through Physical Therapy, Ameer can focus on helping people when they need it most, “physical therapy is my way in bringing the light amongst people who have lost some hope in the world.”

Upon completion of his degree, Ameer has two goals, to open a physical therapy center and a Mexican restaurant!

Meet Nardene

Medical Laboratory Sciences Major/Biology Minior

A native of Bethlehem and dedicated fourth-year student at BU, Nardine majors in Medical Laboratory Sciences with a minor in Biology. Her unwavering curiosity about the intricacies of human physiology led her to select BU’s Medical Lab Sciences program. After graduation, she is hoping to have the opportunity to apply to a Master’s Program in Genetics, as this field is critically needed in hospitals in Palestine.

Undoubtedly, these four years have been filled with both challenges and memorable moments. As she reflects upon her time at Bethlehem University, it is, “with profound gratitude, I am deeply appreciative of the opportunities and support provided during those four years. Bethlehem University will forever hold a special place in my heart as I begin a new chapter in my life. I will always cherish the memories and experiences gained at Bethlehem University.”
