Le Moyne, Crouse Hospital’s College of Nursing offer “Degree in three” program in nursing

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Le Moyne College and the Pomeroy College of Nursing at Crouse Hospital are working together to offer “Degree in three,” a new three-year dual degree program in nursing.

The partnership seeks to “help address the regional and nationwide shortage of nurses,” the organizations said in a news release.

The program will provide students with dual enrollment at both Pomeroy and Le Moyne, culminating upon completion in an associate degree in nursing from Pomeroy and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Le Moyne. It will begin this January.

The schools designed the three-year program to address two “key” challenges in nursing. New York this past January approved legislation requiring all graduates of diploma and associate-degree nursing programs to earn a bachelor’s degree with a major in nursing within 10 years of graduation.

The current shortage of registered nurses (RNs) and nurse leaders and educators, is “predicted to persist and even worsen in the coming years,” the organizations said.

“Le Moyne is pleased to partner with Crouse on this exciting new opportunity in nursing education. The three-year program provides the best of both worlds: an on-campus experience and extensive clinical practice,” Margaret Wells, dean of the Purcell School of Professional Studies at Le Moyne College, said in the release.

About the program

Students can complete the curriculum in three years, which includes winter and summer courses. With a condensed program, tuition costs will be lower than a traditional four-year degree at a private college, Le Moyne and Pomeroy said.

When asked for a specific tuition figure for the program, Cheryl Abrams, director of communications and digital media at Crouse Health, told BJNN that she was told the tuition figure “has not yet been published.”

Participating students will have the “campus experience” at Le Moyne, including student services and on-campus housing, “while benefitting from the extensive nursing educational resources at Pomeroy,” per the release.

Student support will include academic advisement, peer mentoring and tutoring.

All financial aid and tuition payments will be coordinated through Le Moyne, including a variety of federal and state aid, student loans, scholarships and awards.

In addition to Le Moyne’s academic resources, the program also provides clinical “opportunities and support.”
