Northwestern Health Sciences University

Organizational Overview

Northwestern Health Sciences University is a progressive institution educating the next generation of health care professionals. Located in Bloomington, MN, the institution has been a fixture in the market since 1941.

The University has a clear mission and reputation of developing excellent academic and professional programs in what has been traditionally described as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Their deep history is rooted in their founding of The College of Chiropractic, established over 70 years ago which continues to provide more than 85% of the practicing Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) in the state of Minnesota.

While the institution's history is rooted in the chiropractic profession, the University strives to position itself as an institution focused more broadly on health and wellness.  As the demand for graduates in chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine and massage therapy continues to grow, NWHSU is uniquely positioned to offer training in a range of patient care options that are natural, evidence based, non-invasive and integrated with traditional medicine.  Its more than 130 faculty members annually teach about 1,000 students across degree and certificate programs and 7,000 continuing education students. NWHSU has more than 7,500 graduates throughout the U.S. and in 21 countries.  The University is a not-for-profit institution accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Its 25-acre, non-residential campus in Bloomington, Minnesota is eight miles from MSP Airport and ten miles from downtown Minneapolis.
