Montefiore School of Nursing

Montefiore School of Nursing has been in the forefront of nursing education for over 100 years. Based in Mount Vernon, New York, the school is a private, registered nursing program that offers a two-year associate's degree. Graduates are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for registered nurses, and the School is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc.

Through a strong theoretical and clinically based program, Montefiore School of Nursing graduates receive the skills and confidence to provide the community with competent, quality nursing care.  Learning in a hospital environment prepares our students to work in a variety of clinical settings. Our nurses secure employment in hospitals, home healthcare, education, long-term care, public health administration, forensic nursing, occupational health and research. Montefiore School of Nursing provides the foundation for nurses who are committed to excellence and are prepared to embark on a career that provides a professional challenge as well as satisfaction of spirit.

The School is part of Montefiore Health System, a premier academic medical center with significant research and teaching programs.
