Looking to the Future of Rutgers Nursing

Dr. HolzemerWelcome to the Rutgers School of Nursing. The school was established on July 1, 2014 as the result of the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act. The heritage of Rutgers College of Nursing, founded nearly 60 years ago in 1956, and the legacy of the former UMDNJ School of Nursing, founded in 1972, bring together the best in nursing education, research, and service previously offered by both institutions.

We salute those whose efforts have positioned us for this moment in time; moving us toward our vision of becoming a local, national, and global leader, providing innovative inter-professional collaboration to advance nursing research and scholarship.

Our website provides an overview of our integrated school, academic programs, student and faculty demographics, briefings on our Centers of Excellence in Research and Evidence-Based Practice, nurse-managed Community Health Centers and respective projects, functional school organization, and campus locations.

Please peruse each section to learn more about our school. If you have any questions, or would like to offer any feedback, please e-mail my office at schoolofnursing@rutgers.edu.
