Nyack’s First Nursing School Graduates

Nyack College celebrated another milestone on Saturday, May 11, when the School of Nursing’s inaugural class received the bachelor of science in nursing degree. Some 20 men and women were among the nearly 700 students who received undergraduate and graduate degrees at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY.

The nursing school graduates crossed the stage with an added distinction. On April 17, 2013, the School of Nursing was visited by the evaluation team of the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), a national accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. The commission found that Nyack is in compliance with all four of the standards for nursing program accreditation.

“This was truly an affirmation of the strength of Nyack’s new bachelor of science in nursing program,” said Dr. David Turk, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “Much gratitude is owed to Dean Elizabeth Simon and all of the School of Nursing faculty, staff and students for their dedicated work to build this exceptional program. The Evaluation Team will submit their report to the commission, which will vote on accreditation early this summer.”
