“Such continued support is an indication of the federal
government’s high level of confidence in the education offerings of The
College of New Rochelle Graduate Nursing Program,” said Dr. Donna J.
Demarest, Dean of SN. “Federal projections indicate an increased
demand for the advanced practice nurse who provides leadership in
clinical, research, educational and administrative areas and we aspire
to help meet that demand.”

recognized for innovation and excellence in programming that is
responsive to the public’s changing health needs. The School offers six

management. Post master’s programs are available in all acute
care tracks, HIV Aids, and the Nurse Educator role.
The baccalaureate program at CNR prepares a nurse
generalist who practices in a variety of settings with clients of all
ages from diverse and multicultural populations. A CNR graduate is
prepared to assume beginning leadership roles and facilitate change to
improve the quality of client care in the health care system. The
master’s program prepares a nurse professional at advanced levels of
practice in health care management. Specialty options in the program
provide opportunities at all levels of advanced practice including
health promotion and restoration, disease prevention and provision of
