Marywood nursing students can finish at Scranton

Written by The Associated Press | May 2, 2013 8:47 AM

(Scranton) -- After losing accreditation for its nursing program, Marywood University in northeastern Pennsylvania has announced a plan to allow third-year nursing students to complete their degree with the University of Scranton.

Marywood is making the announcement less than a month after the National League of Nursing Accreditation Commission informed the school it was denying accreditation to the nursing program. Marywood is appealing and has reapplied for accreditation.

Marywood University President Anne Munley announced the agreement with the University of Scranton on Wednesday.

Under the arrangement, third-year nursing students in good standing at Marywood can apply for transfer to Scranton's nursing program based on an evaluation. Accepted students will have the ability to graduate in May or August of 2014.
