Christ Hospital in Jersey City has been delivering quality healthcare to Hudson County for more than 140 years. With a high quality medical team-including more than 500 doctors with specialties ranging from allergies to vascular surgery – the 376 bed acute care facility offers a full spectrum of services and has been recognized for excellence.


The Christ Hospital School of Nursing has been affiliated with Christ Hospital since 1890 when it was founded by Sister Gertrude Amy Trufant of the St. Margaret, an order of the Episcopal Church. For over one hundred years the accredited school has been preparing qualified applicants for the nursing profession.


The Hospital and Christ Hospital School of Nursing together offer essential health care education and services to the community. In Spring 2011, Hudson Holdco, LLC purchased Christ Hospital and in 2012 changed their name to CarePoint Health. In Spring 2013, Christ Hospital changed its name to CarePoint Health – Christ Hospital thus the school’s name was changed from Christ Hospital School of Nursing to CarePoint Health School of Nursing to be in congruence with the governing organization.


In 2012, the School of Nursing was re-designated as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education.
