Message from the Dean

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Phillips School of Nursing (PSON) at Mount Sinai Beth Israel!

PSON offers you two pre-licensure programs:  an Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing and an Accelerated Associate of Applied Science in Nursing.  We also offer licensed nurses the opportunity to advance with the Bachelor of Science Completion Program (RN-BSN).  But no matter which program you choose to fit your specific needs, rest assured that all of our programs will prepare you with outstanding critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills.

Located in a culturally rich city, our School is an integral part of the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS), a top-tier, fully-integrated network of physicians and professional staff who provide education, research, and medicine across the full range of specialties.  Clinical rotations are offered in a variety of inpatient settings throughout the seven hospitals in the system, as well as out in the community, where you will have an opportunity to work with at-risk populations. At PSON, you will learn alongside preceptors who are experienced practitioners and educators in their chosen specialty. 

We are very proud of our School’s reputation for working with each student individually to ensure that he or she will succeed.  I am especially thankful to our faculty—who have spent considerable time and energy to research those ways that will provide you with the guidance, support, and educational opportunities essential for a successful transition into nursing practice.  Their energy was recently recognized through the School’s renewed designation as a Center of Excellence in the category of Creating Environments that Enhance Student Learning and Professional Development.

We hope that you will consider taking the next step forward with us because, as always, my goal remains to ensure that all paths from our School will lead to the best and brightest futures!
