In a recent ranking by PracticalNursing.org, MSWSPN secured the fourth position out of 58 LPN schools in the state. This ranking is a significant achievement for the school, reflecting its commitment to providing high-quality nursing education.

PracticalNursing.org’s ranking methodology evaluates LPN programs based on key performance indicators, notably the past and present first-time NCLEX-PN pass rates. This approach is designed to measure how effectively a program prepares its students for licensure and their subsequent nursing careers. MSWSPN’s high ranking underscores its success in supporting students through their educational journey and into their professional nursing roles.

Founded in 1956, MSWSPN stands out as one of only three hospital-based nursing programs in New York State and has graduated over 1,800 nurses since its inception. Additionally, Finger Lakes Health, which offers the program, provides a Tuition Buy Back program aiding eligible employees, including LPNs, in repaying student loan debt. The school is currently accepting applications for the 2024-2025 academic calendar until February 1, 2024. Those interested in learning more about the Marion S.
