Lehigh Valley Health Network and the Joseph F. McCloskey School of Nursing are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our community. We are committed to protecting our students, faculty, and staff. To do our part in reducing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all classes and clinical experiences have transitioned to an online format effective Monday, March 23, 2020. Faculty will communicate schedule, clinical experience, or coursework changes directly to students via the course management system.

Message from the Director
The relationship that exists between the faculty and the students helps and encourages students to grow both personally and professionally. Our curriculum offers a winning combination of clinical experience and classroom learning that enables our graduates to be consistently successful on the licensure examination and to transition effectively to the graduate nurse role. Graduates of our program are employed locally as well as nationwide. We are proud of their accomplishments and contributions to the profession of nursing.
I am pleased that you are considering a future in nursing since the profession needs individuals with the intelligence, integrity and dedication to meet the challenges and opportunities offered by a nursing career.
