CarePoint Health School of Nursing is a two-year cooperative program with Hudson County Community College and New Jersey City University. Upon completion of the program our students can earn a diploma in Nursing and an Associate Degree in Science.
Our moderate size student body and close student/faculty relationships enhance individual and professional growth. Our academically prepared and clinically competent faculty present nursing theory and clinical studies. This combination has brought praise and acclaim to our graduates for their nursing skills and the knowledge that they bring with them upon graduation. This has also contributed to our high passing rate on the National Council Licensing Examination.
Upon completion our graduates are able to:
- Manage care in a patient-centered and culturally sensitive manner.
- Interrelate evidenced-based practice from nursing and other disciplines when providing patient care.
- Perform all learned skills safely and communicate appropriately with all members of the health care team.
