Colby-Sawyer College’s Nursing Program has always had a strong reputation given its partnership with nearby Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. But an announcement made Tuesday could boost that reputation to a whole new level. Officials announced Tuesday that the college will be establishing the Colby-Sawyer School of Health Professions to be launched in October in conjunction with the nursing program’s 30th anniversary.
According to a press release, the School of Health Professions will better support student scholarship funds, space and equipment needs, and faculty and curriculum development in the health professions.
The School will be housed in McKean Hall, and be headed by the Chair of the Nursing and Public Health Department, Dr. Susan Reeves.
