Nursing Four-Year Program

The ways in which nurses were educated during the 20th century are no longer adequate for dealing with the realities of healthcare in today’s fast-paced, high-tech world of medicine. Many institutions now require registered nurses to hold a bachelor’s degree for this reason.

Given the increasing healthcare demands of our population, opportunities in nursing employment are expected to grow by more than 40 percent by 2031, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. At St. Joseph's University, our mission is to prepare the next generation of nurses by offering a four-year, B.S. program for undergraduates.



Danielle Monteverde '19

"When I found out about the four-year program (in nursing) here at St. Joseph's University, I was very hopeful. I came to orientation and was told about all the exciting things that were in store for this program, and I was anxious to get started. I remain grateful for the opportunities presented through the University, and to continue the path to not just a profession, but a lifetime of learning in nursing."
