Mount Saint Mary College

Newburgh, NY 12550

Mount Saint Mary College (MSMC) is a private, not-for-profit institution in Newburgh, New York. It was established in 1960 by the Dominican Sisters and maintains its affiliation with the Roman Catholic Church. The campus includes 44 acres of land and a view of the Hudson River. The academic buildings include a mixture of renovated 19th-century homes and modern facilities, including a state-of-the-art technology center. The college has also greatly expanded its facilities in recent years to keep up with increased enrollment. While the college offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs, nursing remains one of the most popular majors.

The college offers four BSN paths and an MSN program with two specialty tracks: Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner and Family Nursing Practitioner. The BSN options include traditional BSN, LPN to BSN, RN to BSN, and adult degree completion programs. The adult program is designed for working adults and includes evening and weekend classes. Students must already have an associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree in an unrelated field to enroll in the accelerated adult program. These programs are accredited by the CCNE. Students enrolled in any of the BSN programs complete their clinical experience through partnerships with local healthcare facilities.
