About The Institution

About Thiel College:

About the Nursing Department:
Thiel College has formed a strategic partnership with the Sharon Regional Medical Center’s School of Nursing, which has been preparing students to practice as registered nurses since 1899. This experience combined with Thiel’s century and a half tradition of education in the liberal arts and sciences means students don’t have to sacrifice either state-of-the art scientific training or the benefits of a liberal arts education.

Students in the program are admitted to both Thiel College’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program and Sharon Regional’s Registered Nurse program. Upon completion of both programs, students will earn an R.N. through Sharon Regional, and complete additional coursework at Thiel College to graduate with a B.S.N. This opens up many opportunities for the graduates of this collaborative program.
