Programs like nursing and health sciences, which focus on the care of others, respect for the dignity of every person, and the importance of service to God and neighbor, flow naturally from and support the Catholic and Dominican mission of Providence College.

– College President Rev. Kenneth R. Sicard, O.P. ’78, ’82G



The School of Nursing and Health Sciences is built on PC’s strong liberal arts heritage, which leverages excellence in the sciences and a distinctive core curriculum.

Faith and Reason

The integration of Catholic and Dominican teachings creates a distinctive, holistic, and human approach to educating future health care professionals.

Community and Diversity

Programs focus on the care of others. Access to quality healthcare is a growing challenge for PC’s neighbors throughout Rhode Island, New England, and beyond. A respect for the dignity of every person supports the College’s Catholic and Dominican mission.

Shrinking Workforce

More than one-fifth of all nurses report that they plan to retire from nursing over the next five years.

New Learning Spaces for Nursing and Health Sciences

Now Open: High-tech labs for clinical simulation, anatomy and physiology, and academic spaces to support engaged student learning.

The Learning Labs, located on the fourth floor of the college’s Feinstein Academic Center, will serve as the interim academic hub for the School of Nursing and Health Sciences. In addition to state-of-the-art labs, the newly redesigned facility will feature tutoring and study spaces, faculty offices, and additional resources to support student success inside and outside of the classroom.

This fall, the college broke ground on its permanent home, the Ben Mondor Center for Nursing and Health Sciences. PC has hired SLAM, the same architectural firm that designed the award-winning Science Complex and the Ruane Center for the Humanities, to develop the 125,000 sq. ft. building. The design will feature the latest teaching-learning, research, and innovation facilities and equipment.
