About the School

The nursing program at Rutgers University-Camden is committed to meeting its threefold mission of education, research, and service in southern New Jersey and the Delaware Valley. Our program has been preparing nursing students for baccalaureate-level professional practice for more than 35 years.

The nursing faculty at Rutgers-Camden are award-winning teachers, scientists, and clinicians. They believe that education for professional nursing is best accomplished in a university setting, where a spirit of inquiry, the excitement of discovery, and creative and critical thinking flourish. Within such settings, the future nurse can best reach his or her individual potential and gain an appreciation of the multifaceted roles and functions of nursing within society.

The School of Nursing-Camden (SNC) has a four-year baccalaureate program leading to a bachelor of science degree in nursing. The dynamic nursing curriculum integrates nursing knowledge and the acquisition of nursing practice skills with courses from the natural and social sciences, liberal arts, and the humanities. With this broad educational foundation, students can better understand the various dimensions of the individuals, families, and groups they will care for as nursing professionals and come to value the lifelong learning expected of them.

The School of Nursing-Camden also offers a doctor of nursing practice in two tracks: adult gerontology primary care nurse practitioner and family nurse practitioner, as well as a post-master's option for nurse practitioners holding a master of science in nursing degree. The School of Nursing-Camden offers post-baccalaureate certificates in wound ostomy continence and school nursing. Jointly with the School of Business-Camden, the School of Nursing-Camden offers a doctor of nursing practice/master of business administration (D.N.P./M.B.A.) degree in executive nursing leadership.

The Rutgers resources, the school's simulated learning lab, and clinical collaborations established with local and regional Delaware Valley health care providers provide important supervised clinical experiences. Clinical collaborations expose students to interdisciplinary team experiences and provide faculty access to conduct their research and apply findings toward evidence-based changes in clinical practice. Nursing students have research opportunities with faculty as well as opportunities to be civically engaged through service learning experiences in New Jersey, the greater Delaware Valley, and through study abroad.
