Nurses are the largest group of healthcare providers in the United States. They have an important mission to promote health for people of all ages and promote healing when illness or injury strikes. Nurses practice in a wide array of settings, from hospitals and outpatient offices to surgical centers, schools, prisons and camps, among others. With a curriculum that unites liberal arts with nursing — and offers diverse opportunities for meaningful clinical experiences — this program equips nurses for long, rewarding careers in the profession, wherever they choose to work. Our students are also prepared for graduate study.

“My Seton Hall education gave me the leading edge to excel as a staff nurse, a nurse educator and nurse leader; whether serving on professional nursing boards, state committees, or as a nursing leader.”Diana Tocko, '80, M.S.N., '90, R.N.-B.C., N.E.-B.C.Director of Quality, Clinical Practice and Education, Deborah
We see education as a dynamic process. Through innovative teaching strategies, our faculty offer an active learning environment. We focus on interprofessional education to prepare students for nursing practice.
The curriculum is unique, blending learning in the classroom and the skills lab, as well as using high-technology simulation and patient-care experiences in clinical settings. The curriculum is built on a liberal arts education and includes professional preparation in nursing. Our nursing students study everything from anatomy and physiology to psychology and sociology, and they benefit from a significant amount of hands-on experiences.
Clinical skills are learned and practiced beginning in sophomore year, followed by patient- care experiences in a wide variety of clinical settings including hospitals, long-term care facilities, community-health agencies, behavioral-health settings, schools, clinics, home care and hospice care.
Our faculty members are the backbone of the College of Nursing. They connect with other professional nurses — both nationally and internationally — to stay at the forefront of nursing practice. They actively conduct research at Seton Hall, all while working with students to help them reach their full potential.
