In 1904, Mount Sinai Phillips School of Nursing (PSON), a private, not-for-profit institution, was founded with a distinct focus on exceptional nursing education at the associate's and baccalaureate levels. The clinical rotations are held at top-ranked centers throughout New York City. The two nursing programs offered are in hybrid formats:  Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) and RN to BSN programs.

The Mount Sinai Health System is New York City's largest integrated delivery system encompassing seven hospital campuses, a leading medical school, and a vast network of ambulatory practices throughout the greater New York region.

Accelerated BSN Program (ABSN)

If you hold a baccalaureate degree in another field, the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) degree is designed for you.  Students can become a nurse in 15-months. This program is a hybrid program as well. Afterwards, the graduate is eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensure examination and is well-prepared to pursue masters-level education in nursing. 

Students in the ABSN program must complete a minimum of 48 nursing credits and finish the program within a maximum of six semesters, calculated at 150% of the standard completion time.

RN-BSN Program

The RN to BSN program is designed for nurses who already hold an RN license through an associate's or diploma program and want to pursue a BSN.  The program is offered in a hybrid format with classes held on Wednesdays, allowing nurses to continue working. 

The Upward Mobility Program provides an exciting opportunity for Associate Degree and Diploma Nurses to earn their BSN while working. Joining the Mount Sinai Health System, students not only get their tuition covered (with a portion taxable) but also commit to working for Mount Sinai for two years after graduation.

PSON is awful. There is NO communication, unless you BEG. The professors cant teach, and dont know the material - that is if they even speak English. The faculty care about money, and that is IT. They try to fail students so they will repeat classes and get more money.They hold onto your financial aid money for month at a time too.

You will teach yourself everything, you will be lied to by admin, you will cry and struggle through like we all do, but the nursing school experience will have been robbed from you.
