Photo Caption (L to R): Instructors Nicole Linder, CST, and Stephanie Williams, CST, CRCST, Surgical Technology and Surgical Processing Technician programs, Berkeley College School of Health Studies, prepare one of nine new laboratories for students at the Woodland Park campus. The School of Health Studies has relocated from Clifton to Woodland Park.
Berkeley College has expanded its Woodland Park, NJ, campus with the renovation of facilities to accommodate the growth of its School of Health Studies. As a result, the College relocated its School of Health Studies program previously based at 600 Getty Avenue in Clifton, to its campus at 44 Rifle Camp Road in Woodland Park.
“This move made sense because of the many resources and services available for students at the campus in Woodland Park,” said Linda Pinsky-Mauro, Berkeley College Campus Operating Officer, Woodland Park. “All students will benefit from the full campus environment we experience here.”
With career prospects in healthcare fields continuing to offer growth opportunities, enrollment continues to increase in health-related programs. To provide the proper comprehensive learning environment to accommodate these professions, Berkeley College in Woodland Park, NJ, recently completed renovations and planned the move of more than 400 students who previously attended classes in Clifton. The students enrolled in programs in the School of Health Studies began attending classes at the Woodland Park campus on Monday, April 4, 2016.
The new facilities included nine teaching laboratories, staff offices, and faculty work stations near the labs. The labs are used to teach students enrolled in the medical assistant, nursing, patient care technician, surgical processing technician, and surgical technology programs. All are located adjacent to Renaissance Hall, a modern hub for campus activities and student resources that includes classrooms and amenities – the fitness room, student center, and café – and dedicated, convenient and accessible student services such as the library and academic support center.
Berkeley College in Woodland Park, NJ, began offering the MBA in Management degree in September 2015. The degree program is also offered online. Berkeley College in Woodland Park also has received approval from the New Jersey Board of Nursing to offer the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree to Licensed Practical Nurses beginning in the Fall of 2016.

Luing School of Business®, the School of Professional Studies, the School of Health Studies, and the School of Liberal Arts.
