Pace University’s Lienhard School of Nursing expands
BSN/MS Combined Degree Program to Manhattan Campus
For the non-nursing college graduates who wish to become registered nurses
NEW YORK — Highly motivated, self-directed adults who have already earned a bachelor’s degree and are considering a new career in nursing can apply to Pace University’s Lienhard School of Nursing for the Combined Degree Program (CDP) now offered at its lower Manhattan campus. Students who have successfully completed the prerequisites can become registered nurses in one year (12 months) after completing the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) portion (50 credits) of full-time study. The Master of Science (MS) can be completed in four semesters. Current master’s specialties include: Family, Psychiatric and Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner, Case Management and Nursing Informatics. (A part-time program is also available).
In response to the growing need for qualified nurses, The Lienhard School of Nursing designed this rigorous demanding program to provide the second-degree student with entry level and advanced professional nursing education in an accelerated format. The CDP requires a heavy credit load, along with clinical courses and hours. Affiliations with more than 200 health-care agencies throughout the tri-state New York metropolitan area provide students with numerous opportunities for clinical experiences.
The bachelor’s (BSN) section of the CDP is offered in one-year (three semesters) cycles that begin annually in January at the Pleasantville campus and in September at the New York City campus. For 2002 only, a class is being offered in Pleasantville starting in June. Applications are currently being accepted for this summer in Pleasantville and this fall in New York City.

The Lienhard School of Nursing at Pace University offers a number of degree programs including the 4-year BS program; the baccalaureate completion program for RNs; an accelerated RN/BS/MS for RN’s; combined degree BSN/MS program for non-nursing college graduates; master’s programs in family nurse practitioner, psychiatric nurse practitioner, women’s health care nurse practitioner, and nursing informatics; and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study option in most specialties. The LSN also has three centers of excellence: The Center for Nursing Research, Clinical Practice and International Affairs, the Center for Continuing Education in Nursing and Health Care, and the Learning Resource Center, that enrich the educational experience and support student learning.
