Iona College has announced it is launching a new Bachelor of Science degree program in nursing this fall.
In a statement, officials say they are trying to meet the need for the global surge in demand for registered  nurses. “As we have seen throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses truly are heroes – and the world needs more of them,” said Seamus Carey, Ph.D., president of Iona College. “In keeping with the mission and values of an Iona education, the nursing curriculum will prepare nurses who can both initiate and adapt to change, serve patients with compassion while demonstrating critical thinking in health care innovation, engage in bold leadership and advocacy, and seek knowledge wherever it presents itself in pursuit of a global culture of health.”
Iona’s nursing program will be housed in a state-of-the-art, 7,500 square-foot learning facility complete with all of the newest equipment, technology and simulated learning opportunities.
The college in New Rochelle says it will offer a traditional four-year undergraduate program open to both freshman and transfer students, and a 15-month second-degree program for students who already have a bachelor’s degree in another field.
The college is accepting applications for both programs immediately. For more information, click here.
