The Saint Joseph’s School of Nursing at Mount Saint Vincent carries out its mission with an awareness of the diversity and needs of our community of interest, offering students a sense of responsibility, critical thinking, open inquiry, and self-respect, while acknowledging the need for lifelong learning.
Through the University’s partnership with Saint Joseph’s Medical Center, our students can now further expand their nursing experience, education, and career opportunities, advancing our joint missions to provide world-class care across the Bronx, Westchester, and beyond.
Graduates become professional nurses and healthcare leaders, using critical thinking skills to address the complex health-related problems of a diverse population across the lifespan. With small classes and a close proximity to the resources and opportunities of New York City, students enjoy personalized attention in addition to an assigned advisor. Many online resources, including online testing and experiential learning, are another feature of this highly sought-after program. By assuming responsibility for their own professional development, students use what they have learned to plan competent, effective, and evidence-based nursing care that contributes to safe and high quality outcomes.

*On May 24, 2023, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) Board of Commissioners directed the University of Mount Saint Vincent baccalaureate degree nursing program to show cause as to why accreditation should not be withdrawn due to historical and current NCLEX Pass Rates being below regulation standard. ‘The issuance of a show cause directive is not an adverse action, but a statement of serious concern by the Board.’ It is important to note that the Mount Saint Vincent baccalaureate degree nursing program remains a fully accredited program.
