Department of Nursing

The Nursing program at the College of Saint Elizabeth is committed to providing distinctive undergraduate and graduate nursing education. The nursing program fosters the development of leadership in students in a spirit of service and social responsibility to others with emphasis on advocacy for patients, nursing profession and healthcare.

We are excited to announce that we have developed two new programs in addition to our RN-BSN program and an MSN program in Nursing Education. Our master's in nursing program began a track in leadership/management which has been very well received. Classes are held at our home campus and in a number of regional health centers and fit a professional work schedule.

A four-year BSN program began in Fall 2019 in our new state-of-the-art simulation lab. The New Jersey Board of Nursing granted provisional accreditation for the program. Full accreditation from the Board is only granted after the first cohort of students complete the program and achieves the requisite passing rate on the NCLEX licensure exam.

The RN to BSN Nursing Program is accredited by the New Jersey Board of Nursing (124 Halsey Street, Newark, NJ 07102 | 973-504-6430) and both the RN to BSN and the MSN programs are accredited through the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (3343 Peachtree Road, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326, 404-975-5000).
