The College of Nursing was formally founded in 1937 and has been offering Nursing classes in Schwartz Hall on the main campus since 1973. The College of Nursing at Seton Hall was the first school in New Jersey and the first Catholic college on the east coast to offer an undergraduate program in Nursing. Seton Hall University’s College of Nursing offers undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees in nursing for students who are entering college for the first time, for those who already have a B.S.N. or M.S.N., and for those looking to become a nurse after already completing a degree in another field.
The College of Nursing’s mission is to educate generalists and specialists in nursing at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Undergraduate and graduate curricula exist within a university community that embraces a student body enriched by cultural, ethnic, and racial diversity where religious and ethical commitment and academic freedom are valued. The College of Nursing aims to cultivate values in its students and graduates that enable a commitment to lifelong learning, service and leadership for the greater god of the global society.
