Admissions counselors are currently reviewing all four-year nursing students from Marywood that have contacted us and have already accepted seven third-year, three second-year and two first-year students to date, said Director of Enrollment Sandra Feather. "

"Our nursing department here on campus has also established a plan of action to help out in this situatin and is also working with our academic affairs department for addition support for clinicals," she added.

Worthington Scranton's program is both NLN accredited and has accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). 

The campus also offers a master's degree for nurse practitioners, as well as bachelor's degree in science.
