Hello. My name is Dr. Cheryl Bergman, and I serve as the interim dean for the Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences at Jacksonville University.

Named by U.S. News and World Report as an America's Best College in the South for more than 10 consecutive years, Jacksonville University is a premier private institution in Northeast Florida. The campus spans 240 acres in suburban Jacksonville, across the St. Johns River from Downtown and just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean.

Jacksonville University consists of four colleges: the Davis College of Business, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts, and the Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences.

The college consists of three schools: the Keigwin School of Nursing, the School of Applied Health Sciences, and the School of Orthodontics. All three schools share an overall focus to prepare our students to join a work force of healthcare professionals who provide exemplary service and care.

We offer a number of undergraduate and graduate programs, including Nursing, Kinesiology, Speech Pathology, Health Informatics, Mental Health Counseling, a doctorate in Occupational Therapy, and our advanced specialty education program in orthodontics and dental facial orthopedics.

With a strong focus on teaching, research, and community engagement, we are well-positioned to provide students with the essential skills and hands-on educational opportunities to be competitive in high-demand jobs in the healthcare industry. All the programs in the college are held in high esteem by our university, our community, as well as regionally and internationally. Our faculty are experts in their chosen fields and are dedicated to student success by providing the very best in didactic and clinical experiences.

We have established numerous local and regional community partnerships, allowing our students to work side-by-side with expert clinicians in their chosen field of study.

The college occupies a 30,000 square foot two-story building with dedicated classrooms, student study and meeting areas, and a Simulation Training and Applied Research Center. We are so excited about the college expansion to a new 107,000-square-foot, $20 million educational classroom building, which will be the home to the School of Applied Health Sciences programs, graduate nursing, the orthodontic clinic, an urgent care clinic, a 100-seat lecture hall, and multiple state-of-the-art learning laboratories.

Whether you want to earn your bachelor's or pursue an advanced degree, I am certain that Jacksonville University meets your needs. I invite you to apply to Jacksonville University and welcome any questions you may have. We look forward to sharing this educational journey with you.
