Nursing at the Mount

    Mount Saint Mary College has long been a leader in preparing students for the healthcare industry.

    The benefits of a Mount nursing education can be seen at hospitals and clinics throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond. The Mount’s nursing program has long boasted NCLEX-RN passage rates that surpass the state average, and our graduates are highly valued in emergency rooms, doctor’s offices, and school settings, and hold leadership positions at hospitals and clinics across the country.
     
    When hiring managers see a degree holder from Mount Saint Mary College’s School of Nursing, they see a candidate who has benefited from dedicated faculty, state-of-the art facilities, and in-depth immersion into the field, all backed by a school with a reputation for healthcare education. From the beginning of their time at the college, Nursing students begin to practice their skills in modern simulation labs under the guidance of knowledgeable, passionate faculty.

    The Nursing Learning Resource Center offers computerized human patient simulators that replicate a plethora of medical conditions found in real-life settings, allowing students to receive individualized instruction and improve their skills in an academic environment before applying these techniques in the real world. Mount Nursing majors also benefit from early experience; students begin clinical opportunities in local Hudson Valley hospitals and healthcare agencies beginning in sophomore year. The college has developed relationships with nearly 40 area hospitals and clinics that provide numerous opportunities for clinical experiences, internships and externships, and job placements after graduation.
     
    A stellar Nursing program isn’t the only thing you’ll find at Mount Saint Mary College. 
    At the Mount, you’ll discover a small, tight-knit community of students and faculty on a modern, 60-acre campus overlooking the breathtaking Hudson River. Located in Newburgh, NY (halfway between Albany and New York City), our students benefit from the history and beauty of the Hudson Valley while only an hour’s train ride away from NYC, offering students a diverse array of internship and job opportunities. On campus, Mount students enjoy newly-renovated living and learning facilities, including spacious dorms, a modern library, and four dining areas, as well as more than 30 campus clubs and organizations, 21 Division III athletics, and numerous opportunities for community service. Our students are supported financially through generous scholarships and financial aid (99% of freshmen receive Mount scholarships and grants) and academically by the Career Center, Writing Center, and Office of Student Success. All of this preparation leads to fantastic alumni success – 95% of our 2017 graduates were employed within 6 months of graduation (2017 graduate survey).
