Specialists in Nursing Education

Nursing education is an area of specialty for Molloy College, with an entire college division devoted to the discipline. The nursing program has advanced steadily since its inception in 1955, growing to its current status as the 4th largest undergraduate nursing program in the country.

The goal of the Division of Nursing is to deliver, design, and evaluate nursing care that is evidence-based, humanistic, and responsive to the ethical, cultural, spiritual, and psychosocial needs of the community.

Molloy offers an array of academic options for nursing students, including a traditional bachelor's degree track, dual degree programs, and degree completion programs.

The Division of Nursing has articulation agreements with the Departments of Nursing at Nassau Community College, Queensboro Community College, the State University of New York at Farmingdale, and Delhi College.

Nursing Bachelor's Degree with Humanistic Focus

The traditional bachelor's degree program draws from both liberal arts and sciences to teach nurse generalists to communicate, evaluate, and provide humanistic health care. The curriculum includes clinical experiences beginning sophomore year, as well as a culminating one-on-one practicum placement during senior year.

Upon completion of the program, nurses are prepared to serve as members of interdisciplinary health care teams in a range of settings, including pediatrics, critical care, obstetrics, and psychiatry.

Graduates are eligible to take the New York State Board Examination for the license required to practice nursing as a registered professional nurse in New York State.

Degree Completion Programs

Molloy College also offers 2 degree completion programs for those already working in the nursing profession.

The LPN -- BS mobility program covers the same curriculum as the traditional degree program, but gives the licensed practical nurse academic credit for past work experience. Program graduates are eligible to sit for the NCLEX examination to earn a registered nurse (RN) license.

Similarly, the degree completion program for registered nurses provides advanced placement for students with associate degrees and or relevant work experience through either transfer of credit or through testing.

Accelerated Dual Degree Programs

Nursing students may also concurrently earn both bachelor's and master's degrees through 2 convenient accelerated dual degree programs.

Student with non-nursing bachelor degrees may enroll in the dual degree program for second degree nurses. This program allows learners to enroll in both undergraduate and graduate courses. After earning the bachelor's degree, the student may then sit for the NCLEX examination for the registered nurse license -- required for continuing on with graduate study.

Malloy provides a similar dual degree program for RNs who hold associate degrees or diplomas.

Comprehensive Nursing Laboratory

The nursing lab offers resources such as study guides, video tapes, computer programs, and a simulation instructor that guides students through relevant medical scenarios.

Professional Conferences

Molloy College regularly hosts professional nursing conferences, demonstrating its leadership in nursing education. Conferences are often organized with prestigious medical centers, such as the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Nursing students may partake in study abroad through the Office of International Education. Students may choose from short-term, semester, or year-long study. Molloy College works with international organizations, such as the Italian Red Cross, to offer these opportunities.

Honors Program

Incoming freshmen, including nursing students, may apply to the Molloy College Honors Program, which includes freshman and sophomore year courses in art, biology, history, literature, music, philosophy, sociology, and theology. The honors nursing students take a special medical ethics course taught by the honors faculty members.

Specialized ROTC for Nursing

Students interested in combining both a nursing career and a Navy career may enroll in a specialized Reserve Officer's Training Corps program for nursing, offered in conjunction with the SUNY Maritime College.

Athletic Opportunities

Athletics are well-established at the college, with programs in lacrosse, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball, tennis, cross country, equestrian and dance team. Students compete in the New York College Athletic Conference (NYCAC) and the NCAA - Division II.
