Message from the Dean

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

Our school has been preparing registered nurses for practice for more than a century and enjoys a distinguished reputation throughout the city for the quality of our graduates. Today, our goal is to become a leader in improving human health through thoughtful initiatives in the areas of teaching, multidisciplinary scholarship, and service efforts that will enhance health care delivery for the local and global community.

Our fully accredited professional programs, all in a hybrid format, include:

  • A unique Accelerated Associate in Applied Science degree in Nursing that leads to eligibility for Registered Nurse licensure in 15 months of full-time study;
  • An Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN)—for students with a prior baccalaureate degree in another field—that leads to eligibility for Registered Nurse licensure in 15 months of full-time study; and
  • An RN to BSN completion program for registered nurses who wish to further their education at the baccalaureate level.  Our program is one of just a few to offer an elective course to help prepare you for a clinical specialty in Critical Care/ED, Peri-operative, or Community/Home Nursing.

We have an exceptional faculty and staff who share a strong commitment to helping you develop and strengthen your nursing knowledge and skills.  Our school is very fortunate to be a part of the Mount Sinai Health System, a top-tier, fully-integrated network of physicians and professional staff who provide education, research, and medicine across the full range of specialties.  When you begin your clinical practice, you will learn alongside preceptors who are experienced practitioners and educators in their chosen specialty.  You will complete your clinical rotations in a variety of settings, which include the hospital, as well as non-profit community organizations and neighborhood clinics.

We look forward to helping you achieve your dream to become a nurse or to advance your current nursing practice with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. 

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.
