Niagara University reopens nursing program to alleviate nurse shortage

 |  NCR Today

Niagara University is reopening its nursing program in response to the current nursing shortage and anticipating future demand for nurses, according to this story from The Buffalo News.

The Catholic university reportedly closed its decades-old nursing program in 2002 “due to a steep decline in market demand for nurses.”

The accelerated 12-month program begins in May, and the four-year degree program starts next fall.
