Ramsey Campus – 10 South Franklin Turnpike, Ramsey, NJ 07446

Eastwick College Ramsey began as the HoHoKus School of Business and Medical Sciences, established in HoHoKus, New Jersey in 1968 as a career-oriented school. The HoHoKus School became a leader among proprietary schools and was recognized as such by many educational, medical, and organizational affiliations. HoHoKus School was one of the first schools in the United States that was not a traditional 4-year college, whose graduates could sit for appropriate American Medical Technologist (AMT) and Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) certifications. HoHoKus School was the first nationally-accredited institution approved by the New Jersey Board of Nursing to teach licensed practical nursing. More than 100 hospitals and medical centers provide clinical rotations and externships for our students.

The school established articulation agreements1 with local colleges for the transfer of credits and was chosen by Thomas Edison State College as the first in the state to be affiliated as a “Degree Partner”. Since 1985, the American Council on Education (ACE) evaluated 167 Eastwick College Ramsey courses and determined that they were equivalent or similar to those taught at the college level, thus issuing college credit recommendations. Due to its success and leadership, HoHoKus was often regarded as the most reputable career institution in the tri-state area. In 2008, the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education and the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools approved HoHoKus’ petition to grant associate degrees and become Eastwick College. The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) granted accreditation in November 2010 to Eastwick College Ramsey’s Associate in Applied Science (AAS) Degree in Surgical Technology program and in November 2013 to Eastwick College Ramsey’s AAS in Diagnostic Cardiovascular Sonography. The Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) granted accreditation to the AAS in Occupational Therapy Assistant program in 2014. The New Jersey Secretary of Higher Education authorized Eastwick College Ramsey in 2015 to exceed its mission and offer the Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Cardiovascular Sonography.
