The schools of nursing at St. Peter’s Health Partners (SPHP) were recently recognized for the quality of their education programs and the future earning power of graduates.
The Memorial College of Nursing and Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing ranked high on a new list from RegisteredNursing.org, which rates nursing schools in New York state based on licensure exam pass rates of graduates.
Of nearly 100 schools and colleges of nursing in New York included on the list, the Memorial College of Nursing ranked fifth, and the Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing ranked 10th.
Additionally, both SPHP schools of nursing were recognized by Forbes. This summer, the magazine published an article, titled The Top 30 Two-Year Trade Schools: Colleges That Fight The Nation’s Skills Gap, which ranked “special focus two-year” schools in the health care industry. The ranking took into consideration the earnings of graduates four and eight years after graduation, program affordability, and quality of the education.
On the Forbes list, the Memorial College of Nursing ranked 16th in the nation, and the Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing ranked 18th in the nation.
Both SPHP nursing education programs aim to prepare students for entry into the profession of nursing as competent, caring practitioners. Graduates consistently achieve pass rates on nursing licensure exams that consistently exceed both the state and national pass rates, and most years 100 percent of students completing the associate degree program obtain employment either prior to or within one month of graduation.
Both the Memorial College of Nursing and the Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
