Nursing majors are constantly engaging in hands on learning, first in our simulation and skills labs on campus, then during their clinical rotations as upperclassmen.
Our students complete their rotations at The Valley Hospital, Hackensack University Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center. All of these facilities are designated as Magnet Hospitals by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Such a designation certifies a hospital as a Center of Excellence in Nursing, which allows our students to experience nursing in the best nursing departments in the country. Students also participate in community based activities in locations such as The Ramapough Turtle Clan and The Township of Garfield.
