School of Nursing Overview
St. Francis School of Nursing admits once per year, in the Fall. The application deadline is April 30 for the generic and extended programs; and February 28 for the LPN to RN Transition Program; however, we have a rolling admission here at St. Francis School of Nursing. We accept students each month, as complete applications are received and reviewed.
Nursing demands the best of those who choose it as their life's work. It calls for a keen mind, physical fitness, initiative, courage, and perhaps most important of all, a compassion for others. For those who wish to pursue nursing as a career, St. Francis offers an outstanding education in a caring and supportive environment.
The reputation of the faculty, staff, and graduates of St. Francis Medical Center School of Nursing has always been one of excellence and caring. Since 1905, when the school was founded by the Sisters of the Third Order of Saint Francis in Aston, PA, more than 3,300 graduates have contributed to various aspects of nursing and healthcare throughout the U.S. and other countries.
The School of Nursing is a two-year program, affiliated with Mercer County Community College, which culminates in a Diploma in Nursing from St. Francis and an Associate in Science degree from Mercer County Community College. It is a progressive, fast-paced curriculum composed of 40 credits in professional nursing courses taught at St. Francis and 30 general education credits taught at Mercer County Community College.
