The College of New Rochelle is a private institution in New Rochelle, New York. It was established in 1904 by the Ursuline Order. It was the first Catholic women’s college in the state of New York and received its current name in 1910. It is now structured into four schools and has become fully coeducational. The School of Nursing & Healthcare Professions offers nursing programs, along with majors in other health professions. The campus is in New Rochelle, which is a suburb in Westchester County and about 16 miles north of Manhattan. There is a total of 20 buildings on the campus, including the $28.8 million complexes called The Wellness Center. 

The College of New Rochelle School of Nursing and Healthcare Professions offers three paths toward earning a BSN. These options include the traditional BSN program, along with RN to BSN and accelerated BSN programs. All three programs are accredited by the CCNE. Students enrolled in any of the BSN programs must complete clinical rotations. These programs are offered on the campus. However, the RN to BSN program includes a hybrid learning experience. Students complete courses online and on the campus. When completing this program through the Brooklyn campus, students must complete at least one course at the New Rochelle campus.
