The first school in New Jersey to offer a PhD in nursing? It's Rutgers, of course. Doctoral-caliber academics gives our nursing program an intellectual edge.

Strive and touch lives.

The career path for today’s nurses stretches from patients’ bedside to corporate boardrooms. Sure, nurses still care for sick patients, but, with the right foundation, nurses advance into treatment, education, management, and other professional tracks. Build that foundation at Rutgers. Our nursing major is grounded in the liberal arts and sciences and leads to a bachelor of science in nursing, the professional degree in the field.

You’ll learn technical skills here, of course. After all, Rutgers trains its nurses in on-campus simulation laboratories and places them in hands-on clinical rotations at more than 50 hospitals and health care organizations. But what really distinguishes Rutgers’ nursing program is the intellectual depth of its research-based academics. Rutgers graduates nurses who are critical thinkers, well equipped to pursue advanced education in nursing.

Secure a meaningful future with a Rutgers nursing major:
  • Nurses are in demand: more than a half million new nursing positions will open by 2016.
  • Advanced nursing degrees (such as the DNP and Ph.D.) open up high-level positions in patient care, research, advocacy, management, and academia.
