The Nursing Program at Atlantic Cape was developed in 1967 by Professor Ruth M. Lee. Sixteen students graduated in the first class of 1969. At that time, the program was housed in various facilities throughout Atlantic County. Ten years later, the Ruth Lee Allied Health Building on the Mays Landing Campus opened. Nursing classes continue to be held in this building, and clinical experience for the students takes place in hospitals, long-term care facilities and community agencies throughout Atlantic and Cape May counties. Currently, there are approximately 190 students enrolled, and seven full-time nursing faculty and 30 clinical specialists. Nursing Program graduates work in health care facilities throughout Atlantic and Cape May counties and in other parts of the state and beyond. Many have advanced degrees and provide leadership in all areas of health care.

 

The Atlantic Cape Nursing Program is accredited by:

The New Jersey Board of Nursing

The mission of the Nursing degree program is to graduate competent, ethical and caring nurses; and to be responsive to current and evolving health care needs of the community. The department encourages the enrollment of a diverse student population to reflect the communities that are served. Students and graduates are encouraged to perform public service in their community and pursue lifelong learning.

Atlantic Cape's Student Nurse Club (SNC), a community service club, is one of the most active clubs on the campus. Club members have worked with Habitat for Humanity, CARA (Coalition Against Rape and Abuse) of Cape May County, and the Hamilton Township Health Department. Members have assisted with the cleanup of the Atlantic County 4-H grounds, various streets, and several beaches along our shore line. Club activities have included collecting food, books, mittens and other articles to donate to the needy in Atlantic and Cape May counties. The club was a recipient of the state-wide Community Health Award and an honorable mention. As a member of the nursing student body, students are automatically members of the constituency. The club is also open to pre-nursing students. Club meetings are open to anyone who is interested in helping the community. Check the bulletin boards in H-building for meeting SNC meeting updates.
