Both college and nursing courses are taught at Holy Name Medical Center School of Nursing, with some clinical affiliations at other health care facilities.
The HNMC School of Nursing, through its collaborative agreement with St. Peter's College, offers students the option of taking an additional three college credits over the basic curriculum to earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS degree) in the Health Sciences from St. Peter's College. The AAS is in addition to the diploma in Nursing from the Holy Name Medical Center School of Nursing, and is awarded to the graduate who has passed all the prescribed courses and presents verification of NCLEX success to Saint Peter's College.
