Roseman University of Health Sciences is a private university located in the city of Henderson, Nevada, with a second functioning campus located in South Jordan, Utah. It was founded by Dr. Harry Rosenberg, enrolled its first class in January 2001 and was originally called the Nevada College of Pharmacy and the University of Southern Nevada.[1] The name is a portmanteau of the names of University President Dr. Harry Rosenberg and Pharmacy School Dean Dr. Renee Coffman. Part of the reasoning behind the name change was the fact that the university has a significant presence in Utah, making the former name, which emphasizes Nevada, geographically inaccurate.

The university offers a Doctor of Pharmacy, Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Business Administration degrees. Roseman's programs are unique in that they utilize a block system in which students focus on one topic at a time (rather than enrolling in multiple courses concurrently).

Roseman University of Health Sciences is licensed to operate in the State of Nevada by the Nevada Commission on Postsecondary Education. It has been granted Accredited status (2008) by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).[2]

The Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). The college has an institutional membership in the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP).

The Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Nursing holds full approval status with the Nevada State Board of Nursing.[3]

The college has been granted Accredited status by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc. (NLNAC).[4]
