NEWPORT – Salve Regina University is developing a partnership to allow graduates of St. Joseph School of Nursing, which offers a three-year diploma program, to earn their bachelor of science degree in nursing by attending a fourth year of coursework at the university.

“Salve Regina University and St. Joseph School of Nursing have had a wonderful working relationship for many years,” Traci Warrington, Salve’s dean of professional studies, said in a statement.

“This is a natural progression for our institutions, and we are excited about developing this educational partnership that provides the opportunity for students at St. Joseph School of Nursing to work toward a baccalaureate degree, which is becoming the standard for nursing professionals nationwide,” added Warrington.

The “3 plus 1” academic progression model that will be used will draw on the strengths of the institutions to produce “highly-trained, highly professional baccalaureate-level nurses required by today’s continually-evolving healthcare environment,” according to a release.

The agreement outlines a shared curriculum design and a financial structure for tuition and fees.

“Many St. Joseph graduates will make highly-competitive applicants to Salve Regina’s nursing program,” Patricia Nadle, vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer at St. Joseph Health Services of Rhode Island, said in prepared remarks.

Salve and St. Joseph both are Catholic, co-educational, private, nonprofit educational institutions. St. Joseph’s was founded 1899 and first approved by the State of Rhode Island in 1912. It is located on the campus of Our Lady of Fatima Hospital. Its three-year program allows graduates to take the national licensing examination for registered nurses.
