Nursing Program

The Mansfield University nursing program at Robert Packer Hospital offers a state-approved, National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) – accredited baccalaureate degree in nursing science (BSN). This degree is rapidly becoming the academic standard for professional nursing and provides a solid foundation in nursing as well as the liberal arts and sciences. It prepares students to work in a variety of professional settings.

Incoming freshmen spend their first 2 years on the University’s campus in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, taking courses in general education and nursing. The second 2 years are spent at the Mansfield University/Guthrie Educational Center, located in Sayre, Pennsylvania, where students take the majority of their nursing courses and gain extensive clinical experience in a wide range of specialty care units within the hospital. In addition, students learn in community settings such as home health agencies, nursing homes, school districts and outpatient clinics. The Sayre site includes Robert Packer Hospital, Patterson Education Building and Student Residence.

The nursing program at Mansfield University blends the resources of a public university and a medical center. The combination leads to a program that is strong, both academically and clinically. It is the only one of its kind in Pennsylvania and New York.
