Welcome to the Rutgers School of Nursing - Camden

Rutgers University is a world-class public research university. The Rutgers School of Nursing-Camden (SNC) became the fourth designated school on the Rutgers-Camden campus in 2011 but its tradition of excellence in nursing education extends over 35 years.  We have an impressive record of success, which is powered by:

  • A curriculum integrating nursing courses with natural and social sciences and the arts and humanities beginning in the first year of study
  • Affiliations with top hospitals and health care agencies that provide challenging clinical experiences
  • Personalized attention from nursing faculty who are leaders in their fields of nursing
  • Opportunities to build skills and knowledge through participation in research and service learning projects locally, regionally, and globally
