HIV Care Specialization

Academics & Admissions

Every nurse is an HIV nurse.

Because nearly everywhere you look — from the hospital to the clinic, to correctional and mental health settings — nurses are at the forefront of HIV prevention, care, and treatment.

At Rutgers School of Nursing, we prepare nurses to become strong advocates who deliver top nursing care to individuals, communities, and populations with or at risk for HIV infection.

Whether you’re an advanced practice nurse seeking HIV care certification or a DNP student looking to add this specialty to your study, our inclusive curriculum has the cutting-edge science you need to deliver nursing care to key populations in an interdisciplinary format.
