Hartwick College and SUNY Oneonta Partner on One-Hart Nursing
Hartwick College President Darren Reisberg and SUNY Oneonta President Alberto Cardelle put pen to paper today, approving a first-of-its-kind nursing articulation agreement between the two institutions.
This partnership allows SUNY Oneonta Pre-Nursing Advising Track students to transfer seamlessly into Hartwick’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program after they complete their first two years at SUNY Oneonta. One-Hart students begin their phase at Hartwick in the summer immediately following year two at SUNY Oneonta.
The signing took place in the state–of–the–art Clark Nursing Simulation Laboratory on the Hartwick College campus. Signatories on the One-Hart articulation agreement include Laurel Bongiorno, vice president for academic affairs and provost, and Patricia Grust, chair and clinical associate professor of nursing, from Hartwick, and Enrique Morales-Diaz, provost and vice president for academic affairs, Tracy Allen, dean of the School of Sciences, and Tami LaPilusa, program coordinator of pre-health professions, from SUNY Oneonta.
This is a historic moment as it is the first nursing articulation agreement of its kind between the two institutions. We both recognize the severe nursing shortage this region is facing. And by working together, Hartwick and SUNY Oneonta are ensuring that a steady stream of highly qualified nurses is graduating, entering the workforce immediately prepared to contribute, and serving to boost the region’s economic vitality.
