Center For Continuing Education

Announcement

After 30 years of outstanding service to the Lienhard School of Nursing and professional nursing community, the Center for Continuing Education in Nursing and Health Care will be closed effective July 31, 2008. The Center was nationally accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center throughout these many years. Unfortunately, steep competition both in the form of highly cost-effective, online education and free hospital based continuing education combined with the nursing shortage and the inability of hospitals to release nurses to attend ce programs have greatly compromised the Center’s ability to attract and sustain participants.

If you need a certificate for a continuing nursing education program you attended anytime between 8/1/02 and 7/31/08, please email nursing@pace.eduor call (914) 773-3552.

Lienhard is at a ten year high in the enrollment of undergraduate and graduate nursing students, and we are very proud to be in the midst of admitting our first class for our newly approved Doctor of Nursing Practice Program. Our FNP program is ranked #9 in the country, and we recently received a HRSA award to support the new DNP program. Lienhard is a thriving, growing school with much to offer the professional community. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with you through other, new and exciting avenues for professional development.

Should you be interested in an academic teaching position at Pace, either as an adjunct or full time faculty member, please feel free to contact me anytime either on email or on the cell (914) 645-4476.

Thank you for your support of continuing nursing education. We wish you all the very best for your lifelong professional development!
