For over 100 years we have educated quality nurses, now we would like to teach you!
The educational program has been developed from the philosophy and student learning outcomes of the School of Nursing. The program provides education and guidance for students in preparation for their delivery of comprehensive professional nursing care as graduate nurses.
St. Francis Medical Center provides a cooperative nursing program with Mercer County Community College in which the graduate will receive a Diploma in nursing from St. Francis and an Associate in Science degree from Mercer County Community College. It is a progressive, fast paced curriculum composed of 40 credits in professional nursing courses and 30 general education credits.
The School offers three program options: Extended, Generic, and the LPN –RN.
Throughout the program extensive clinical experience is closely correlated with classroom instruction. While the majority of clinical experiences are provided at St. Francis Medical Center, additional institutions and agencies are also utilized. At all times the clinical education is taught by St. Francis instructors.
When the student has successfully completed the planned program of studies, completed all planned comprehensive testing and pre-graduation requirements, and fulfilled all financial obligations, he/she is eligible for graduation. Graduates are then eligible to take the licensing examination, National Council of State Boards of Nursing Examination (NCLEX-RN), to become a registered nurse.
