The Nursing School next to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center was founded in 1936 by Schwester Selma Mayer, who also directed it for many years.
More than 2,000 graduates have worked or are currently working in health systems in Israel and overseas, contributing to the nursing profession in a wide range of roles: diagnosing and treating health disorders, health prevention and promotion, providing health solutions for special needs and multi-cultural populations and serving in management positions in health, education and research.
Nursing School graduates have a fine reputation for extensive professional knowledge, advanced skills and professional conduct appropriate to Jewish ethics and Halacha.
The Shaare Zedek Medical Center has an international reputation thanks to its fine balance of advanced medicine with individual care for every patient. The close connection and feeling of belonging that the Nursing School engenders promises a high level of study alongside practical specialization on site, with no need to travel to other places during the academic year.
There are two study tracks at the Nursing School:
1. Nursing degree under the aegis of the Lev Academic Center.
2. RN qualificaton for academics switching professions.
School management ensures that the learning atmosphere is comfortable, professional and supportive and the teaching faculty has a huge amount of cumulative teaching experience.
Next to the school is a large commercial center with all day-to-day needs. The school's location, next to one of Jerusalem's main highways, means it is easily accessible from all areas of the city and close to the Central Bus Station.
