The Department of Nursing enrolls nearly 500 students and offers two accredited programs. Our 8-semester, 4- year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, with freshmen admission is recognized for its high NCLEX pass rate, clinical affiliations with some of the best health care facilities in the Philadelphia area and an innovative five-semester ‘community home’ rotation with a population-based, service-learning focus. Our Doctor of Nursing Practice program includes a post baccalaureate option and two specialty concentrations: Adult Gerontology Primary Care and Family Individual across the Lifespan. A post master’s option prepares graduates for practice leadership roles in a variety of health care settings. Expansion of graduate program offerings is anticipated and will include additional DNP specialties and a master’s direct entry program for non-nursing college graduates. The department is opening a nurse-managed community health center serving the Sharswood/Blumberg neighborhood of North Philadelphia.
