NU School of Nursing to Offer Classes at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center
Niagara University and Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center announced yesterday a new partnership that will improve educational opportunities for registered nurses and profoundly impact the future of nursing education, downtown revitalization and regional job creation.
The agreement was announced by Niagara University’s president, the Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., and Memorial President & CEO Joseph A. Ruffolo. It calls for Niagara to conduct credit courses at the medical center to enable registered nurses enrolled as students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.
In addition to the nursing classes hosted by the hospital, classes will be made available on Niagara’s campus for both Memorial employees and non-employees who enroll in the program. An initial cohort of 15-30 students will begin studies at Memorial during the upcoming fall semester.
