Hospital, UB sign nursing education pact

The University of Bridgeport (UB) and Bridgeport Hospital recently announced a plan to integrate the hospital’s School of Nursing (BHSN) program into the university. Full program transfer is envisioned, with the university assuming full program responsibility.

Meanwhile, an interim agreement offers UB students a Pathway to Nursing curriculum, effective immediately, which provides priority admission to the BHSN diploma program. UB students will be accepted to the School of Nursing by completing pre-professional coursework at the university.
