Launch Experience

Hospitals, public health agencies, outpatient facilities and community organizations are just a few of the health care settings that are seeking bachelor’s-prepared nurses.  In fact, they’re all part of a nationwide push to increase the number of bachelor’s-prepared nurses in the workforce to improve patient outcomes.

What our Saints Say

"My favorite part of the nursing program at Siena is the bond I have created with both the faculty and students. The teachers are willing to assist students not only with nursing but with personal issues as well. The nursing students want to help each other out rather than compete with each other."

Meet the Baldwins

The Baldwin Nursing Program was created thanks to a gift from Thomas J., Jr. '81 & Laurie (Kowalczyk) '80 Baldwin. Nursing is a large part of both Tom and Laurie's life as both of their mothers were nurses, and their daughter and daughter-in-law are currently nurses.
