St. Francis College Admits Largest Nursing Class

The largest incoming class of students admitted to St. Francis College’s undergraduate nursing program recently was honored at the fourth annual Nursing White Coat Ceremony. The ceremony continues a tradition that adds special meaning in recognizing the vital role nurses play in the health care system.

More than 200 students are now enrolled in the undergraduate bachelor of science degree in nursing at St. Francis. Last year’s graduates are now working across the city at hospitals and health care organizations including New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist, NYU, Maimonides Medical Center, Visiting Nurse Services and several others.
