PMC to Partner with Boston College Nursing Program

In late June, PMC President Gloria Nemerowicz announced the launching of a collaborative articulated 2 + 2 Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program in conjunction with the William F. Connell School of Nursing at Boston College, which will begin in September 2004.

In making the announcement of the new program, President Nemerowicz said, “We are delighted with this new collaborative effort with Boston College. During their first two years at PMC, interested students will be able to take introductory nursing courses at Boston College, which is less than a mile from our campus. Working closely with their academic advisors, they will then determine whether a nursing career is what they really want.

“Students successfully completing the 2-year collaborative program will then have the option of transferring to BC’s School of Nursing for their junior and senior years to complete their degree,” Dean of the College Nia Lane Chester explained. “It is a win-win situation for everyone.”

To participate in the program students need to have taken a minimum of 2 years of high school science, including biology and chemistry, and 3 of math, including algebra I and II and geometry. While in the program they need to maintain of minimum 3.2 GPA at PMC and obtain at least a C+ in the three required courses at Boston College.
