The New York State Department of Education has approved Manhattanville College's application for new degree programs in nursing. Now the college is offering two degrees in nursing at its campus in Purchase: a Bachelor of Science in Nursing for traditional 4-year and transfer students as well as a Bachelor of Science in Nursing for second-degree students who already hold a bachelor's degree.
Christine Dehne, Ph.D., dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, anticipates the influx of nursing students will bring an increased vibrancy and energy to campus and a renewed interest in Manhattanville's already popular science courses.
"A career in nursing offers competitive salaries and benefits, job security, career flexibility and the personal satisfaction that comes with helping and serving others. I was pleased to support Manhattanville's efforts to establish the School of Nursing, which will help more students build fulfilling careers in an in-demand and growing field," Mayer said.
