RN Mobility Program and Partnership for Nursing Opportunities Program (PNOP)

Educational Mobility Program for Registered Nurses

Hartwick College offers registered nurses the opportunity to broaden their knowledge through study of the liberal arts while building on existing skills—a special opportunity that can help them move toward advanced professional nursing practice. We accept RNs from accredited associate degree and diploma programs in nursing as candidates for a bachelor of science degree with a major in nursing; RNs enter with advanced standing, and they can take courses on a full-time or part-time basis.

As a special incentive for nurses employed full-time at Bassett Medical Center, Hartwick, SUNY Delhi, and Bassett Medical Center offer the Partnership for Nursing Opportunities Program (PNOP). 

We're proud to partner with Bassett Medical Center.  U.S. News & World Report recently released its annual Best Hospital ranking and Bassett is ranked 25th in New York State and 1st in Central New York - that's top-ranked out of 45 hospitals in the region.  There were a total of 241 hospitals reviewed statewide in New York and quite a few of those are exceptional prestigious facilities in New York City. 

The report showcases more than 720 of the nation's roughly 5,000 hospitals. 

U.S. News Health Ranking Editor Avery Comarow says, "The rankings are like a GPS-type aid to help steer patients to hospitals with strong skills and the procedures and medical conditions that present the biggest challenges.  All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care."

The complete rankings and methodology are available at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals.

Applications for the RN Mobility program are processed through the Admissions Office in conjunction with the Department of Nursing. For more about the RN Mobility program application process click here.
