Holy Name Medical Center-Sister Claire Tynan School of Nursing


Founded in 1925, Hope Name Hospital School of Nursing is one of the largest co-educational schools in New Jersey offering diplomas. It is sponsored by a Catholic healthcare institution and offers three nursing programs: School of Nursing—Registered Nurse Program; School of Nursing—Practical Nurse Program; and a LPN to RN Articulation program.

The School of Nursing—Registered Nurse Program is associated with St. Peter’s College in Jersey City, New Jersey, and is highly competitive. This program is accredited by the New Jersey Board of Nursing and the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission. Coursework within this program includes nursing theory, liberal arts and sciences, as well as supervised clinical experience. Some classes offered in the Registered Nurse Program include anatomy/physiology, English composition, psychology, microbiology, sociology, adult health, and management of patient care. The Registered Nurse Program gives students the opportunity to earn an Associate of Applied Science in the Health Sciences from St. Peter’s College by simply adding three college credits to the basic curriculum.

The School of Nursing—Practical Nurse Program offers an extensive curriculum that incorporates classroom instructions as well as clinical experiences which are supervised by faculty from the School of Practical Nursing. Some classes offered in the Practical Nurse Program include anatomy/physiology, pharmacology, nutrition and diet therapy, psychiatric nursing, maternal and child health, and medical-surgical nursing. Accredited by the New Jersey Board of Nursing, the Practical Nurse Program takes 12 months to complete and earns students a nursing diploma.

The LPN to RN Articulation program is designed for students who have completed a minimum of four semesters of study. Through this program students have the opportunity to obtain an Associate of Applied Science in Health Sciences, in addition to a diploma in nursing from St. Peter’s College. Transfer students can also apply for this program.

The academic year runs from mid-August to late June. All courses are taught at Holy Name Hospital School of Nursing, with the exception of clinical affiliations which are scheduled at different healthcare facilities.
