Today, the demand for nurses has never been greater. Nurses are gaining more responsibility and opportunities for leadership, and becoming an equal partner in health care settings. A nurse is often the first and last person that a patient sees when they come in through the door.
We Prepare Decision-Makers
At the Phillips School of Nursing, we give nurses the skills to practice at the top of their license. By that, we mean we help nurses gain the skills to make decisions about what needs to be executed, as opposed to just executing a task that’s directed by someone else. Today, nurses need to be able to diagnose patients to prevent complications, as well as employ nursing treatments and interventions. We give you the confidence, the knowledge, and the ability to engage in rapid assessment and provide expedient interventions that directly impact the well-being of patients.
"Our graduates utilize the skills gained from the classroom and clinical setting to go on and do great things locally and nationally. It makes me so proud every time I see one of our graduates working at a Mount Sinai Hospital."
~ Noel Davila, Assistant Dean for Enrollment Management
