Trocaire College has been educating compassionate, knowledgeable and devoted nurses to serve the greater Buffalo community for more than 50 years. Our nursing students are grounded in Mercy traditions and armed with real-world clinical experiences at hospitals and healthcare facilities all over Buffalo, where they learn how to apply their hands-on laboratory skills and complex classroom fundamentals to situations they’ll face every day as they help heal Western New Yorkers. Nursing is a calling, and backed by their challenging, comprehensive and engaging Trocaire educations received in the Catherine McAuley School of Nursing, our students are empowered to answer that calling and find careers where they make a difference every single day.
Registered nurses are often on the front lines of direct patient care in hospitals and most other healthcare facilities. There’s more need than ever before for well-educated and highly trained RNs, and Trocaire’s curriculum prioritizes the knowledge and skills needed to promote, maintain and restore health within our diverse and ever-changing healthcare system. Our immersive clinical placements allow students to gain hands-on experience in various settings and identify a career path they’re passionate about.
