A cooperative agreement has been signed between Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem and the Jerusalem College of Technology, Lev Campus, to turn the current 2.5 year diploma program into a four year academic program to earn a degree in Nursing.

The program will enable Shaare Zedek to continue to train nurses at a high level as well as deepen the relationship of the Jerusalem College of Technology to the Hospital. The agreement will allow students to experience clinical infrastructure and will result in nurses who are able to integrate into the workforce sooner than registered nurses.

Shaare Zedek School of Nursing will continue to run its regular programs, including continuing education courses.
