Upward Mobility Program (RN-BSN)

The bar for nurses is rising. More than ever, today’s nurses need a BSN degree to compete in the job market. This 15-month, full time Upward Mobility Program (UMP) is an innovative path for registered nurses (RNs) at the associate degree or diploma level to gain their BSN while working. UMP nurses will be working a 30 hour work week for three months while you are transitioning to this full time BSN position with an option to become full time after this introductory period. And you will have your tuition fully paid for! In return, graduates make a commitment to work within the Mount Sinai Health System for two years after graduation.

This program is a path for RNs who would like to join the Mount Sinai Health System. Whether you’re a seasoned nurse or a new graduate, you will have a very supportive environment to take the next step in your career.

As a new recruit to Mount Sinai, we have openings throughout our eight hospitals in the New York area. This program affords the opportunity to work within a top-tier hospital system, gain your baccalaureate degree, and move into higher professional career choices in the future.

New nurses, who are hired, who enroll, will join in one of three semesters (Spring, Summer, and Fall) that will be offered annually. Didactic courses will be conducted virtually, and clinical rotations and labs will occur at hospitals throughout the system.

RN to BSN nurses will be mentored throughout the program, be supported by our close-knit faculty, and have an extraordinary array of student services behind you. This Upward Mobility Program is unique—no other program offers placement within a top-tier health system, financial assistance in the form of paid tuition, and professional experience that can assist your move forward into an advanced nursing career trajectory.
