Roxborough Memorial Hospital School of Nursing
About the School
The School of Nursing was founded in 1898 and graduated five women in 1901.
Since that time, the School has graduated over 2,000 men and women. Many
of our graduates hold distinguished positions in nursing leadership, education,
hospitals and other health related services.
Our hospital-based diploma program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission
for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and approved by the Pennsylvania State
Board of Nursing. We offer two program options, a 16-month (over the course
of two calendar years) full-time day option and a 22-month evening-weekend option.
Through a unique blend of nursing theory, a strong clinical component,
and a focus on community service, our students are extremely well prepared
for their future careers as nurses. Ranking among the top nursing programs
in Pennsylvania, 98.14% of graduates passed the National Council of Licensing
Examination (NCLEX-RN) for Registered Nurses on their first attempt between
October 2018 and April 2019 with 79% of the Class of 2018 completing the
Program in 150% of the time. 98% of graduates that responded to our survey
obtained employment within one year post-graduation.
Hands-on clinical experience, highly -educated and experienced faculty
and low student to faculty ratio in the clinical setting is the key to
a quality education. With an average annual cost of $12,000, excluding
required fees, Roxborough Memorial Hospital School of Nursing provides
the opportunity for a quality nursing education at a reasonable cost.
