The Department of Nursing offers graduate programs in Advanced Nursing, Parent-Child Nursing, Adult Health Nursing, Nursing of Older Adults, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and Family Nurse Practitioner as well as Post-Masters certificates in Nurse Education, Nurse Administration, Pediatrics and Family Nurse Practitioner.

The programs lead to a Master of Science degree and prepare nurses for advanced practice with a variety of clients in community and health settings. Graduate Nursing students attend classes and seminars on Lehman's campus in the Northwest Bronx. They also have access to selected graduate offerings in other units of the City University. Clinical experience is provided in a variety of settings throughout the metropolitan and tristate area. These include hospitals, community and mental health centers, and other facilities where health care is provided. The graduate nursing program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
