Genesee Community College’s Nursing Program accepted its very first class of students 50 years ago. Since then, applications, courses, curriculum and equipment have all changed following the significant evolution of healthcare overall. The one thing that hasn’t changed is the program’s commitment to delivering qualified and capable nurses to the community.
Ensuring its continued progressive success, Genesee Community College’s respected Nursing Program is hosting two information sessions specifically for individuals interested in entering the field. These sessions are the introductions to GCC’s Traditional (non-LPNs) Nursing Associate in Applied Science degree and are being held in time to meet the program application deadline of February 1, 2020.
Anyone interested in beginning a career as a nurse is encouraged to register today for one of the two information sessions. The two sessions take place in Room 214 on the second floor of the Antoinette Marchese Clancy School of Nursing in the MedTech Building, which is located across the street from GCC’s Main Campus at One College Road, Batavia, NY 14020. The session, which provides the information, is scheduled for:
Tuesday, January 21, 2020 from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
“The Nursing Program Information Sessions are not only a pre-requisite for anyone entering the program, but are the best way for someone who is still undecided to get a taste of what the program offers,” Laurel Sanger, GCC’s Nursing Program Director said. “In just two hours, we provide a brief introduction to the profession of nursing, describe the program requirements and cover everything one needs to know to get started on the process of applying.”
There are also two new elements being introduced to GCC’s Nursing Program this anniversary year:
Beginning late this spring, The Antoinette Marchese Clancy Scholarship Fund, will be available to support several second-year GCC nursing students who are academically in the upper third of their class and have illustrated excellence in their clinical performance. The new Scholarship was established through a generous gift from the Clancy Family to recognize Antoinette Marchese Clancy who graduated in 1974 from GCC’s Nursing Program.
In addition, the Antoinette Marchese Clancy Excellence Award will be presented to the nursing student who demonstrates top clinical performance at the Nursing Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, May 16, 2020. Read more about Antoinette Marchese Clancy School of Nursing.
