PBPH Fall Update
Flexible design, exceptional educational experience
We are thrilled that you are considering taking the next step of your professional education at Northwestern Health Sciences University. We know pursuing your new career during an uncertain time can be a challenge, and we are committed to ensuring this will not compromise your education. That’s our promise to you.
NWHSU’s Fall PBPH Term Will Be Online and On Campus
Because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, to maximize learning and minimize health risks, the fall PBPH courses will be offered in a hybrid model. This means that much teaching and learning will be delivered online with strategic hands-on learning saved for on-campus experiences.
On-campus labs and hands-on classes will follow expert guidance and will comply with MN’s Stay Safe Plans regarding personal precautions such as mask wearing and social distancing to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff.
Flexibility for all Students: Online-Only Option
If taking all classes fully online this Fall is a better fit, we can accommodate you. We encourage you to take the in-person labs if you are able, but can work with your individual needs. Our admissions counselors will be happy to talk through this in greater detail with you.
Rest assured that the high quality education for which NWHSU is known will continue during our use of a hybrid model. During the past few months, our faculty have been hard at work discovering new and innovative ways of teaching remotely that enhance learning.
Online Student Orientation Sept. 8; Classes Begin Sept. 9
Our New Student Orientation will take place on September 8, 2020. During orientation, university leaders, program leaders, faculty and current students will welcome you and provide the information you need for success at NWHSU. Courses start remotely on September 9, 2020 and in-person experiences will be scheduled throughout the term. Please ensure your computer meets or exceeds the hardware requirements and you have internet access to succeed in our online learning environment.
This is an incredible time to take your next professional steps. Our communities need you now more than ever. We are excited to welcome you to the NWHSU community and share in your journey.
