DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- Mercy College announces a new bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree, which has been approved by New York State Education Department, Office of the Professions, beginning September 2015.
“Mercy’s new Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program will be a wonderful addition to our college and our existing nursing programs," said Peggy C. Tallier, director of Nursing Programs at the college.She noted that there is a predicted shortage of highly qualified nurses in the United States.” The program is designed to provide education in preparation for licensing and professional nursing practice. Mercy College’s new program will offer cohort traditional face-to-face classes.
Clinical learning experiences will be conducted via a state-of-the-art simulation laboratory as well as traditional, hands-on, instructor-supervised training in Westchester County and New York City health-care facilities. This education experience will provide the preparation needed for the challenging and diverse health care needs of our community and throughout the United States.
Upon successful completion, students will earn a baccalaureate degree, be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensure examination and be qualified for admission to graduate nursing programs.
