Challenged by exceptional academics and outstanding professional opportunities, youll work toward greatness every day at Pace.
Work toward greatness is not simply a tagline at Pacewe live and breathe it every day. How? Well let a few of our students tell you.
Caitlin (p. 18) You must have the courage to become the person that you think you are meant to be, and I believe that Pace encourages students to pursue their dreams and passions and provides them with the skills they need to get there. Valerie (p. 22) There are opportunities everywherein life and at Pace. You just have to look for the ones that are right for you. Brandon (p. 28) The knowledge and performance level Ive obtained is amazing and life changing. My faculty mentor is constantly helping me grow as a dancer, a professional, and a person. Without her training, I would not have maintained the stamina and vigor for my job as a swing on tour [for In the Heights].

Andrew (p. 30) Working toward greatness means strategically mapping out your academic career, class by class, semester by semester, year by year. If all the planning and prioritizing is done already, success will fall into place. Hatsue (p. 32) Greatness is unique for each person. To me, it means a fulfilling, happy, successful life. Everyone desires to achieve happiness: receiving an education is working toward that goal. We never stop learning; we never stop looking for ways to improve ourselves and the world.

Working in the Emergency Department, I need to be able to think on my feet. At Pace, I not only learned the assessment skills I needed, but also the ability to apply that knowledge to each individual patient.

Hands-on experience, after just one year

The Lienhard School of Nursing at Paces College of Health Professions offers something most other nursing schools dont. As a rst-year student, youll take your rst nursing course so that by your second year, youre ready to start your hands-on clinical experience. During your junior and senior years, you will have the opportunity to practice at outstanding health care institutionssuch as the Mt. Sinai Hospital Center, Westchester Medical Center, Northern Westchester Hospital, and the Visiting Nurse Service of New Yorkand learn through exposure to cutting-edge theory, technique, and technology.


Success stories start here:

Pace graduates consistently exceed the state and national pass rates on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). In the rst quarter of 2012, 100% of Lienhard nursing students passed the exam.

Andrew recently completed gerontological rotations at Bethel Health Care and a New York-based geriatric nutrition center, as well as a psychiatric rotation at Phelps Memorial Hospital Center. Next up: medical surgical and maternity clinicals. Andrew is committed to serving others even in his down time. As a brother in Phi Kappa Tau, he helps to raise funds for SeriousFun Childrens Network, which sends children with grave illnesses to camp. Ultimately, Andrew wants to become an emergency room nurse.
