Program Outcomes

We support our students to succeed. We prepare students to transition seamlessly to clinical practice, a graduate degree, research, or experiences such as the Peace Corps or other non-governmental organizations. As graduation approaches, you will have access to career workshops and our career portal. Whatever avenue you choose, we are there to support you.

One of the advantages of studying within the Mount Sinai Health System is the vast number of professional contacts you will make. Whatever your goal is, you will most likely encounter people who have done it. You will be able to draw upon their experiences and contacts to take concrete steps toward your ambition.

And once you leave, you really haven’t left us. You still have the opportunity to come back and engage with us for resources or references, or any other support you need as you move through your career. Our alumni association is a valuable resource, available to you at any time. You will always be a lifelong member of the Phillips School of Nursing community.

It’s also true that the vast majority of our students decide to work within the Mount Sinai Health System. We need you now, more than ever. We have spots for you throughout the Health System. And as your goals change, you can fulfill them at Mount Sinai. Today you may want to be a perioperative nurse and leader in the operating room. Five years from now you may want to go into oncology. We’re here to help you make those transitions—from connections to certifications to continuing education. At Phillips School of Nursing, you have the “people power” behind you to help you move forward. One of the reasons students come into nursing is because there are so many avenues available. And we are here—with guidance and support—to help you explore them.
