School of Nursing and Allied Health

Saint Joseph’s is adding to an already robust portfolio of healthcare programs. Through our merger with Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences, nursing will be offered for undergraduate students at our Hawk Hill campus in the fall of 2024. You will benefit from a nursing school that has been a regional leader for over a century, with experienced faculty leading well-established coursework, simulation-based learning and hands-on clinical experiences in Philadelphia, one of the nation’s healthcare hubs. You will acquire the necessary hard skills to succeed in nursing, but also key soft skills such as critical thinking, compassion and how to care for the whole person. These skills are foundational to our Jesuit education that prepares you for lifelong learning and a commitment to the greater good.
