Saint Elizabeth College of Nursing
St. Elizabeth College of Nursing was founded in 1904 and is located in Utica, NY. They offer an ACEN accredited ADN program which boasts a small student-to-faculty ratio, creating an enhanced learning environment. The school adheres to the Franciscan tradition and value system, focusing on compassion, humility and reflection, fostering peace, justice and respect, community service, and a quest for trust.Students at St. Elizabeth’s will have the opportunity to complete 630 clinical hours over the course of their studies. Many of these hour include medical-surgical nursing, which students will complete at the St. Elizabeth campus of Mohawk Valley Health Systems (MVHS).
During the third semester of the ADN program, specialties such as pediatric and obstetrical nursing will be explored at the Faxton-St. Luke’s campus, which is also part of MVHS. Evidently, the college has valuable partnerships for its students. They also have a joint program with SUNY Polytechnic Institute, offering a dual degree opportunity that allows students to earn two degrees in four years: an ADN from St. Elizabeths, and a BSN from SUNY Polytechnic Institute.
