Welcome to Harriet Rothkopf Heilbrunn School of Nursing

The Harriet Rothkopf Heilbrunn School of Nursing is dedicated to educating its students to become nurses who provide the highest quality of nursing care to a diverse and complex population in challenging and everchanging social, political and economic environments across the country and around the globe. The school offers an undergraduate baccalaureate program for students with no nursing background (generic track) as well as an R.N.-B.S. program for nurses who do not hold a B.S. degree.

Flexible undergraduate tracks are offered for students in the generic program. The part-time/evening track is specially designed for those students who work during the day.

The 15-month accelerated track is offered to those students who hold a baccalaureate degree in another discipline.

An accelerated RN-BS/MS degree program (Bachelor of Science/Master of Science) is offered in the nurse practitioner track. The School of Nursing admits students on a “rolling” basis and most courses are offered each semester.

The undergraduate program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (C.C.N.E.) and all of its programs are registered with the New York State Education Department. Graduates of the B.S./M.S.Nursing/Adult Nurse Practitioner Program are eligible for New York State certification as an adult nurse practitioner.
