We are pleased to share that the Phillips Beth Israel School of Nursing will now be known as the "Phillips School of Nursing at Mount Sinai Beth Israel”.
Founded in 1904, the School received approval to grant the degree of Associate in Applied Science with a major in Nursing in 1978. In 2014, the New York State Education Department approved and the Board of Regents accredited the school at the baccalaureate level.
The School’s mission, as a single-purpose institution, is to provide optimal academic and clinical experiences at the associate and baccalaureate levels in nursing. Our 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.
The new name honors the School’s mission and values while more clearly emphasizing its association with the larger Mount Sinai Health System. We look forward to advancing education and nursing-related research even further in the years to come.
