Nursing and Health Sciences

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.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Bethlehem University was established in 1976. Its main purpose is to educate professional nurses to meet the health and nursing needs of the Palestinian people regardless of religion, gender or socio-economic background. The graduates are prepared to collaborate with other members of a health team in order to provide quality health care in the community.

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.
