College of New Rochelle Closing; Concordia's Nursing School to Offer Guaranteed Admission to Its Nursing Students PDF Print Email


By Rebecca Portnoy, Communications Manager, Concordia College

Mar. 20, 2019:  Concordia College New York has announced that it will offer College of New Rochelle nursing students affected by CNR’s likely closing guaranteed admission to Concordia’s top-rated nursing program. Significantly, Concordia will accept in transfer all completed nursing courses, including clinical courses. Concordia has created a web page where CNR nursing students can find complete information:

Concordia is extending this offer of guaranteed admission and full credit transfer to CNR’s undergraduate and post-baccalaureate (accelerated program) nursing students in good standing, as well as to any students who have been accepted into CNR’s upcoming nursing classes. CNR students will graduate on time in their program of choice: accelerated or traditional undergraduate.  

Dr. Susan Apold, PhD, ANP-BC, GNP, FAAN, FAANP, and dean of Concordia’s School of Health Sciences and Nursing, said: “CNR has a world-class nursing program, and we want to give these students the opportunity to transfer to another world-class program. I am a registered nurse, and I want everyone with the same dream to achieve their goal without interruption.”  

Concordia’s highly regarded, well-established nursing program is kicking off its tenth anniversary Decade of Impact celebrations in 2019. The school’s first-time NCLEX (National Council Licensure Exam) pass rate of 95% (well above both the national pass rate of 89% and the New York State pass rate of 88%) places the program in the top five in New York State.

One hundred percent of Concordia’s nursing graduates are employed within ten months, sought after by top health care providers including White Plains Hospital, Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, NYU Langone, Weill Cornell, and Memorial Sloan Kettering. Many specialize as OR, ER, neonatal, or trauma nurses; many others go on to become nurse practitioners.  

Whether in the accelerated 15-month post-baccalaureate program or traditional undergraduate program, Concordia’s nursing students thrive, supported by the personal attention this small, diverse, faith-based college provides. CNR students are welcome to walk into Concordia’s admission office in Talbot House with their transcripts for an instant transfer decision.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
