HCCC serves one of the most ethnically diverse and densely populated communities in the United States. The College is a vibrant, urban institution of higher education whose mission is to provide its diverse communities with inclusive, high-quality educational programs and services that promote student success and upward social and economic mobility.

The Nursing Program stands as a beacon of excellence, providing students with a comprehensive education that combines theoretical knowledge, practical experience, and a nurturing environment to prepare graduates to be eligible for the New Jersey State Licensure Examination for Registered Professional Nurses (NCLEX–RN).  The Nursing Program strives to produce competent and compassionate nurses who will make a significant difference in the lives of their patients and communities.

The faculty and staff are at the heart of the Nursing Program, and take great pride in their expense and dedication.  The faculty members are highly qualified and experienced professionals who bring a wealth of knowledge and real-world insights to the classroom.   They are not only educators but also mentors and role models, guiding students through their academic journey and inspiring them to reach their full potential.  The staff members provide invaluable support, ensuring a conducive learning environment and facilitating students’ access to resources and clinical placements.

The Nursing Program has Clinical Affiliation Agreements with Cooperman RWJ Barnabus, CarePoint Health, Hudson Regional Hospital and Atlantic Health System. Also, the Nursing Program has Articulation Agreements with NJCU, Ramapo College and Montclair State University which allows students a seamless pathway to obtain a BSN.

More than 90% of HCCC’s students receive scholarships, grants, and loans to finance their education, and the College’s extensive financial aid program helps connect students with the resources they need. To date, the College’s Foundation has raised over $3.5 million for student scholarships, and HCCC ranks first in the state of New Jersey for its award of Community College Opportunity Grant funds. About half of its more than 12,000 credit students identify as Hispanic, and more than 33% of all students were born outside of the U.S. In 2021, HCCC had two students selected from a national applicant pool to receive the prestigious Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship and recently six students were named as 2023 semi-finalists.

HCCC is a member of the Achieving the Dream network of community colleges. Achieving the Dream is a national reform network of high-performing community colleges that are focused on leveraging data-informed best practices to promote equitable outcomes. In recognition of its gains in student retention and completion, as well as its narrowing of equity gaps, HCCC received Leader College designation from Achieving the Dream in 2023. 

The College boasts several signature programs, including a nationally recognized Culinary Arts Institute and Nursing Program. The College’s Culinary Arts Institute is one of only three programs in the New York Metropolitan region to hold accreditation from the Accrediting Commission of the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation.

The College also has a Bloomberg Finance Lab, which provides students with real world experience to prepare them for employment in banks, corporations, and government agencies.
