World-class nurses in the heart of South Jersey

Our learning community at Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden inspires students to explore, imagine, and disrupt nursing stereotypes – to understand the full scope of nursing practice and to pursue the unlimited opportunities they have to make a difference.  Here, in the heart of southern New Jersey, we are dedicated to educating excellent nurses who become critical thinkers, life-long learners, and socially responsible citizens motivated to advance health care across homes, hospitals, and communities. As members of Rutgers University, our students enjoy all the benefits of a world-class academic experience in a tight-knit, friendly campus that offers individualized support at a competitive tuition rate.

We believe a person's zip code should not determine the quality of their health care, and in a free society, access to care —and decision-making regarding one’s care— are basic rights, not privileges. Social justice is the fundamental theme that informs our school's strategic direction and a core value that aligns with Rutgers University–Camden's commitment to civic engagement – connecting campus resources with people in the community, enriching students' lives, and encouraging them to become champions of well-being.

Come learn with us – our growth is extraordinary and our future is bright!
