Opened in 2012, MTA's BSN program holds among the highest acceptance criteria among BSN programs nationwide and places particular emphasis on combining quality theoretical studies with hands-on simulation and practical experience, in collaboration with Israel's leading hospitals: Ichilov Medical Center and Tel-Hashomer Hospital and Medical Research Institute.
The four-year programs has a half-half theory and praxis breakdown: the first two years are dedicated to theoretical studies and simulation, and the following two take place within actual hospital wards, where students gain tangible experience.
Students also have a chance to volunteer at a clinic for migrant workers and refugees, and through their interaction with a most vulnerable population face and handle various challenges in healthcare provision - from access and diagnosis to treatment and prevention — relating to cultural sensitivities, socio-economic disadvantage, and systemic resource deprivation. As students are likely to encounter similar challenges in their future work, this experience is of utmost individual and systemic value.
