Helene Fuld College of Nursing has been educating nurses for over sixty years. Founded in 1945, Helene Fuld (a private, not-for profit institution) has always been at the forefront of nursing education. Unique to the mission of the College is its career ladder approach. Recognizing nursing as a multi-level career, the College is committed to advancing experienced licensed practical nurses to the associate degree registered nurse level in a one-year full-time program. Students also have the option of attending part-time.

Helene Fuld College of Nursing is an independent single-purpose institution. Its mission is to provide the opportunity, through a career-ladder approach, for men and women to enhance their education and improve their nursing practice. The college endeavors to produce high quality and technically adaptable nurses who are able to function effectively in a changing society.

To accommodate the needs of students, classes are held from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, and from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Fridays. Clinical classes are held between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Evening classes are generally held between the hours of 4:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.

Helene Fuld provides upward mobility to a largely minority population and provides critically needed registered nurses to medically underserved areas. Ninety-four percent of currently enrolled students are minority; 88% are female; and 75 % have dependent children.

The College is located in Harlem, one of the most dynamic and revitalized communities in New York City. Easily accessible from all boroughs, adjacent counties and New Jersey, the College draws students from all of these areas and is conveniently reached by subway, bus or car. Some out-of-state nurses make housing arrangements in New York City in order to attend the College on a commuting basis as the College has no residence facilities.

Helene Fuld College of Nursing continually seeks to provide its students with the broadest possible spectrum of learning opportunities by using the vast resources of New York City. The College is dedicated to serving its students, the profession of nursing, and the Harlem community of which it is an integral part.
