RN Program Curriculum

  The curriculum of Holy Name Medical Center School of Nursing is developed in accordance with the philosophy and goals of the School and provides for the education of the student as a professional nurse and as a person. The curriculum design is based on a synthesis of constructs, definitions and propositions from Orem's self-care theory. The program extends over two academic years with two 16-week semesters and a six-week spring semester each year. The nursing courses include classroom instruction as well as clinical experiences. The clinical experiences are supervised by the faculty of the School of Nursing.

Holy Name Medical Center School of Nursing has a collaborative arrangement/contractual agreement with St. Peter's College which gives the student the option of receiving an A.A.S. in health sciences in addition to the diploma in nursing. The nursing curriculum is dependent upon proper sequencing of courses. All non-nursing courses in this curriculum are to be completed prior to or during the semester in which they are listed.
