Learn in a State-of-the-Art Facility

In a mutually beneficial collaboration that allows nursing students to receive experiential instruction, Rutgers‒Camden is partnering with overburdened school nurses in the Vineland School District, who often function as the main COVID-19 officers in their schools.
For redefining the possibilities — and beneficiaries — of experiential learning, the School of Nursing–Camden was designated a 2021 National League for Nursing Center of Excellence in Nursing Education for enhanced student learning and professional development.
In honor of National Nurse Practitioner Week, the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden received a proclamation from City of Camden Mayor Victor Carstarphen recognizing the school’s students, alumni and faculty who have made countless contributions to the health and wellbeing of Camden residents and surrounding communities.
In 2021, Rutgers–Camden nursing students became key players in the largest public health mobilization in modern history: the vaccination campaign to repel and defeat COVID-19. The School of Nursing rotated upward of 400 students through Camden Community College’s vaccination site.
