Explore our programs by entering the undergraduate or graduate portals, but first, learn more about why Russell Sage is the place to pursue your degree so you can build a career in health care.

Longevity and Connections

Russell Sage’s Nursing program celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2020. And our Physical Therapy program marked 75 years in 2023.

Why does that history matter?

We have deep connections with health care providers in New York state and beyond. And while all this experience has allowed us to time-test what works, we use our connections to stay current on workforce needs and refine our curriculum.

We also leverage our well-established partnerships to secure key clinical experiences and job opportunities for students and graduates.

Russell Sage in the Community

  • Nurse Practitioner students help administer free physicals to the homeless population who need them to secure employment, and Nursing students assist at community vaccination clinics.
  • Nutrition students and faculty conduct research on how to improve summer meal programs for kids in urban communities.
  • Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy students partner with Head Start sites to observe and create mini-intervention plans for identified students, providing resources to their teachers.

An Art and a Science

Professional disposition and your own personal and professional growth are an important part of the journey at Russell Sage.

But you’ll also learn how to use research to shape your professional practice, inform your decision-making, and become a leader. We’ll show you how to become an advocate – for your patients and clients and for your profession.

If you’re pursuing a path in the health care field, don’t you want to study at a college that cares about wellness and well-being, too?

The Thrive@Russell Sage initiative is a college-wide commitment to the Eight Dimensions of Wellness for our students and employees, as we infuse wellness into the curriculum and into campus activities.
