Message from the Dean Fall 2019

Phillips School of Nursing at Mount Center Beth Israel (PSON) is proud to be a leader in nursing education for 115 years. From the beginning, our school has encouraged a progressive nursing curriculum that is continually revised to respond to current health care needs. PSON has twice been designated a Center of Excellence in the category of Creating Environments that Enhance Student Learning and Professional Development (2014-18 and 2019-2023).

Located in New York City, one of the most exciting and diverse cities in the country, PSON is the sole nursing school in the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS), which includes The Mount Sinai Hospital, ranked among the nation's best. MSHS encompasses eight hospital campuses in the New York metropolitan area and the Icahn School of Medicine and is internationally acclaimed for its excellence in research, patient care, and education across a range of specialties.

Nursing students complete their clinical rotations in a variety of inpatient and community settings where they have an outstanding opportunity to work with at-risk populations and learn alongside experienced practitioners and educators throughout MSHS and other hospital affiliations.

An exciting new Five-Year Strategic Plan for the school strives to improve human health through creative initiatives in the areas of Teaching, multi-disciplinary Scholarship, and Service efforts targeted at local and global communities.

The school’s exceptional faculty, passionate and inquisitive students, and dedicated staff make PSON an unrivaled setting for nursing education. 

PSON offers two contemporary nursing programs:

  • a 15-month Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (ABSN) for second degree students
  • a 15-month Bachelor of Science Completion Program (RN-BS) for registered nurses.

Both programs prepare you with the outstanding critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills needed to excel in today’s dynamic profession of nursing.

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