Founded in 1941, Northwestern Health is a progressive institution educating the next generation of health care professionals in what have been traditionally described as complementary and alternative medicine. As the demand for graduates in chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine and massage therapy continues to grow, Northwestern Health 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. The University offers both degree and certificate programs. The University enrolls approximately 1,000 students across both degree and certificate programs. Some 35% receive grant assistance from the University. While 95% of its students receive federal and state loan assistance, Northwestern Health has a consistently low federal student default rate. Its 25-acre, non-residential campus in Bloomington, Minnesota is eight miles from MSP Airport and ten miles from downtown Minneapolis.
