Nursing Pinning

The School of Nursing and Health Professions educates health care leaders who make a difference in their patients’ lives and in the community. They care for others by integrating the person’s injury or illness within the context of their life situation.

Why choose Trinity’s School of Nursing and Health Professions?

  • I want to improve people’s quality of life

If you love challenges and want to be a health care provider who makes a difference–and if you enjoy science and are open to new ideas–you can be successful in a Trinity allied health program.

Nursing

Students in Trinity’s Nursing program are preparing to enter a profession that requires the continuous manifestation of a deep personal commitment to integrity, compassion and concern for others.  We offer the traditional pre-licensure program through the College of Arts and Sciences, our all-women’s college, as well as an R.N. to B.S.N. program and a pathway for those who have a previous bachelor’s degree.

The priority deadline is February 1 for the fall semester that same year, and October 1 for the spring semester in the following year. Applications received after each deadline will be considered on a space availability basis.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy professionals promote health and wellness to those who are at risk for developing an illness, injury, disease, disorder, condition, impairment, disability, activity limitation or participation restriction through therapeutic use of occupations or everyday activities.  We offer the Associate’s degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant as well as a  Master of Occupational Therapy. Both programs welcome new students only in the fall semester.

Applicants to these two programs who are new to Trinity (not a current student) need to first apply to Trinity here online no fee! Both programs require applicants to complete observation hours at an occupational therapy facility to ensure that applicants understand the professional experience of occupational therapy. The Observation Hours form needs to be completed and submitted to the Admissions office at admissions@trinitydc.edu

  •  Occupational Therapy (M.O.T.) – priority deadline: March 1 for the fall.  Applications received after this time will be considered on a space availability basis.

Allied Health

Health services is an interdisciplinary program designed to address the current and emerging needs in a changing health care landscape. The health services curriculum prepares students to promote delivery of efficient, quality driven health care through a core curriculum that includes a foundation in health care systems, health care policy, finance, and data management. Students can focus on an aspect of health services by selecting one of three tracks in: healthcare management, wellness, or patient advocacy. The program is ideal for students who want to take a non-clinical approach to building a career in the healthcare industry. The bachelor of arts in health services is offered through the College of Arts and Sciences, our all-women’s college, and the Health Science program through our School of Professional Studies for working professionals.
