Senator Pat Stefano released the following statement regarding the announcement of a partnership with Somerset County and Clarion University.
“At today’s Somerset Commissioner’s meeting a lease was ratified which will allow Clarion University to begin the Middle States Cerification to return a nursing program to Somerset County
I am excited to welcome Clarion University and their nursing program to Somerset County. The effort to return a nursing program has been over 2 years in the making and I am so pleased that we secured a partnership with Clarion University, an integral part of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education.
This partnership brings a top notch education program to help staff our world class medical institutions here in Somerset County. Working with Rep Metzgar, I was proud to secure the funding needed to renovate the facility and acquire the technology needed to provide the students in this program with the tools that they need to succeed.”
