St. Joseph's College of Nursing Granted Accreditation by Middle States Commission on Higher Education

SYRACUSE, NY--St. Joseph's College of Nursing at St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center has been granted accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 3624 Market St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19104. 

The Commission is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as an accreditor of degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region, which includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and several locations internationally. The Commission is a voluntary, non-governmental, membership association that defines, maintains and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations and resources. It examines each institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within institutions. 

“Accreditation by Middle States is evidence of the quality and excellence of the nursing education program offered at St. Joseph’s College of Nursing,” said Marianne Markowitz, MS, RN, dean of St. Joseph’s College of Nursing. 

St. Joseph’s College of Nursing provides an associate degree in applied science with a major in nursing. A Dual Degree Partnership in Nursing (DDPN), held in conjunction with Le Moyne College, allows high school graduates to earn both associate and bachelor’s degrees in nursing in four years and to sit for the national nursing licensing exam after just three years. 

St. Joseph’s College of Nursing is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 3624 Market St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19104. For more information, visit www.sjhcon.org or call 315-448-5040.
