Article by: Michael Farrell

BUFFALO—SUNY Erie Community College’s City and North Campus-located Nursing Program was recently recognized as one of New York’s best—and its City operation tabbed tops in Erie and Niagara counties—by vocational website RegisteredNursing.org.

Based on factors associated with exam pass rates studied over a five-year period, SUNY Erie’s downtown Buffalo-set training was ranked 10th out of 99 analyzed registered nursing programs in the state. The College’s equally competitive North Campus-located section was ranked 25th

Consistently ranked as one of the region’s best, SUNY Erie’s Nursing Program is one of the school’s most popular concentrations, and one that successfully connects its students to medical positions throughout the region. Graduates annually find employment as registered nurses in hospitals, public health agencies, nursing homes, extended care facilities, home health care agencies, government health agencies, schools, military, law offices and other health care facilities. 

RegisteredNursing.org is a site whose mission is focused on promoting excellence in nursing through enabling future nurses with the tools they need to succeed. Its online community cares deeply about the profession; provides the resources that future nurses need to succeed; and helps to bring those interested in nursing from the research phase to enrollment, and to eventually their first registered nursing position.

Since 1946, SUNY Erie Community College has met the needs of a diverse student body while contributing to the economic vitality of Western New York. As a member of the state’s SUNY system, the three-campus college provides innovative, affordable and accessible educational programs in an accommodating academic environment. Equipped with the knowledge of these programs, SUNY Erie’s faculty, staff and students strive to enrich their host communities through skill, service and partnership.
