Welcome to Philadelphia University, Faculty of Nursing. The Faculty offers an outstanding educational program designed to meet the diverse demands of today’s nursing students in the service area.  We have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing that provides its graduates with the knowledge, skills, leadership ability, and clinical expertise to excel in the profession of nursing.

This program provides opportunities for high school graduates and for nurses with an Associate Degree in nursing to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The Faculty of Nursing was founded in 2004/2005 and has granted the degree to more than 600  graduates who have successfully moved into the nursing workforce. Our graduates are found in a variety of health care settings, the community, and the academic institutions in Jordan, the neighboring countries, and the world at large.

The Faculty of Nursing strives to equip nursing students with theoretical and “hands-on” learning through offering up-to-date knowledge in classrooms and clinical experiences in hospitals, primary health care settings, and schools. Community service activities are encouraged to provide students with a sense of continuity of care across all age groups, the different care levels, and the various socioeconomic groups and settings. The undergraduate program is among the most academically rigorous on campus and has a notable reputation for preparing quality graduates with a solid foundation for graduate school. 

Our excellent faculty with its diverse educational backgrounds and commitment to excellence has contributed to the distinguished reputation of the graduates of this program.  Research and community service are two assisting pillars to excellence in nursing education and service.
