Further Our Promise – The Campaign for Ramapo College
The Adler Center for Nursing Excellence
The Adler Center is the new home of Ramapo College’s highly-acclaimed and expanding Nursing programs, as well as state-of-the-art labs to enhance the education of Ramapo College students in the sciences. Ramapo’s undergraduate Nursing program has had significant increases in enrollment since its inception in 1993, and a Master of Science in Nursing Education was added in 2002. More than 460 students are enrolled in both Nursing programs and will use the facilities of the Adler Center for Nursing Excellence.
The Adler Center for Nursing Excellence features three simulation rooms where students learn to address emergencies involving their computer-simulated patients. Nursing faculty located in a control room recreate medical scenarios that play out each day in hospitals, making each patient encounter unique. Students are videotaped and, in a debriefing room, and they receive invaluable feedback from their instructors on how to improve their skills and reaction times.
The program currently enrolls more than 500 students in undergraduate and advanced degree programs. Current programs consist of three major academic tracks: a traditional pre-licensure BSN track in nursing, the RN-to-BSN track for nurses returning to school for a BSN degree and a Master of Science in Nursing. The Nursing Program plans to add two more MSN degree offerings, Family Nurse Practitioner and Nursing Administration.
