Welcome to PBISN
The mission of Phillips Beth Israel School of Nursing, as a single-purpose institution, is to provide optimal academic and clinical experiences at the associate and baccalaureate levels in nursing. The school’s vision is: to actively respond to society’s need for caring, knowledgeable, and skilled nursing professionals; to use and develop evidence-based research as the foundation for contemporary education and clinical practice; and to be a leader in associate and baccalaureate nursing education.
Phillips Beth Israel School of Nursing is located in the Chelsea section of Manhattan on Sixth Avenue between West 26th and West 27th Streets. Chelsea stretches from approximately West 15th to West 34th Street between Sixth Avenue and the Hudson River. Today, Chelsea is considered to be the art capital of New York with more than 200 galleries on the far west side. The neighborhood is rich in art, shopping, nightlife, and recreation from the Chelsea Piers to a walk on The High Line. The school is easily accessible by public transportation. We may be reached by bus (M5, M6, M7, or M23) or by train (#1, #6, N or R or F trains).
The school offers a Fast-Track RN-BSN program (15 months) designed for registered nurses educated at the associate degree or diploma level who wish to advance their professional education to the baccalaureate level. Classes are offered on Wednesdays in a hybrid format (onsite and online learning). The program design is seamless for the new nurse graduate as well as the experienced working nurse. Admission is by semester. Starting Fall 2016, the school will offer a unique Accelerated Associate of Applied Science with a major in Nursing program (AAS). Designed for academically-gifted students, this intensive program will enable students to graduate in just 15 months and be eligible for direct entry to the RN-BSN program.
