“Monroe College is addressing the overwhelming nursing shortage head on,” said Jerry Kostroff, Dean of School Allied Health Professions, “and we’ll be doing it the Monroe College way, which means individualized attention for students to learn from the best faculty and facilities.” Nursing education at Monroe will begin when the Winter semester starts on January 4th with an eleven-month, full-time New York State Education Department approved, college credit-bearing certificate program that will provide eligibility for the State Board NCLEX P.N. Exam.
According to the Chairperson of the College’s Nursing Program, Dr. Elizabeth Errico, this is the beginning of Monroe’s foray into nursing education. “We already have first-rate Medical Assisting and Medical Administration Programs,” she said. “This P.N. certificate program is the next step in what we expect will ultimately be a number of advancements in nursing education.”
On Saturday, November 18 the college will administer the National League for Nursing (NLN)Exam and on Sunday, November 19 applicants can take the Academic Technologies Institute (ATI) Exam. Pre registration for both tests is required by November 10th . Both tests will begin at 9am in West Hall on the college’s Bronx campus located on Jerome Avenue near Fordham Road.
