Summer Convocation

Congratulations to our Summer 2023 Graduates!

The College of Nursing received $200,000 in October 2021 from the Helene Fuld Health Trust to establish an endowment fund for scholarships for students enrolled in our Master’s Entry into Practice Program.

In January 2021, the College admitted 27 MEPN students as our inaugural program with graduation in August 2022 .In January 2022, the College admitted 44 new students in the MEPN program.  This class graduated in August 2023 along with other BSN, DNP and PhD students.

Students in the MEPN program have high financial needs, as it is difficult to work during this intensive five-semester program. Therefore, support for scholarships is highly valued and needed as the program continues. The MEPN program is thriving and thanks to financial support from entities like the Helene Fuld Health Trust, it will continue to do so.
