Pathways to Nursing Success Program

Trocaire recognizes that the world is ever changing, and we want to be on the forefront of producing highly qualified, compassionate nursing professionals that meet these needs.

The college’s Pathways to Nursing Success Program 2017-2021 will recruit, and enroll 25 Trocaire Scholars into our Associate of Applied Science Nursing Program. This program aims to provide students with support from admission to completion of both the Associated Degree in Nursing and the Bachelor of Science with a major in Nursing Degree.

The Pathways program seeks to provide opportunities and support to underrepresented populations in the nursing industry and contribute to increasing its diversity. It will provide the following to accepted scholars:

  • Mentoring from peers, faculty, and professionals employed with grant partners Community Health Centers of Buffalo and Erie Niagara Area Health Education Center
  • Enhanced tutoring services with either professional or peer tutors and/or supplemental instruction
  • Case management services
  • Invitations to nursing immersion events to help prepare participants for the RN field and the school/work/life balance needed to get through the program
  • A community of cohorts
  • Financial support in the form of scholarships and stipends to alleviate financial stressors
