Students across all levels of scholarship build knowledge and gain skills through a rigorous liberal arts education that combines hands-on clinical experiences, participation in research opportunities, and service learning at home and around the globe.
Our school's focus on social justice aligns with Rutgers University–Camden's commitment to civic engagement – connecting campus resources with the needs of people in the community and enriching nursing students' lives by preparing them to become advocates for vulnerable populations.
A career in nursing offers limitless opportunities – nurses can practice independently, as part of an interdisciplinary health care team, serve in leadership roles, or use their expertise to advance public health policy. With the U.S. Department of Labor projecting the need for more than a million new and replacement registered nurses by 2020, nurses are in high demand. Across our nation, the nursing profession continues to grow much faster than average and Americans have ranked nursing as the most ethical and honest profession for the past 15 years.
Our Office of Nursing Student Success will help you explore how our academic programs can best fit your scholarly plans and career goals.
