University of Saint Joseph

West Hartford, CT 06117

The University of Saint Joseph is a private Roman Catholic university in West Hartford, Connecticut. It was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1932 on an 84-acre campus. Approximately 45% of undergrads live on campus. The University of Saint Joseph is a small college, with an enrollment of 2,467 students during the Fall 2016 semester. However, the smaller size allows for a smaller student to faculty ratio, allowing faculty to spend more one-on-one time with each student. Since its founding, the university has only admitted women. In 2016, the university voted to begin admitting male students starting with the Fall 2018 semester.

The University of Saint Joseph offers several options for students pursuing a career in nursing. The available nursing programs include BSN, RN to BSN, accelerated BSN, MSN, and RN to MSN programs. These programs offer a low 8:1 student to faculty ratio. The school has a state-of-the-art simulation center and nursing laboratory, while clinical courses start with the sophomore year of the BNS program. Clinical experience is offered through partnerships with the Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Hartford Hospital, and several other prominent healthcare facilities in the area. All programs are also accredited by the CCNE.
