165 Pints of Blood Donated at Mount Drive

Press Releases

Mount Saint Mary College held a blood drive yielding 165 pints of blood.

Newburgh, NY - February 20, 2014 - Students, staff, and members of the local community gave the gift of life at a recent Mount Saint Mary College blood drive, yielding a total of 165 pints.
 
“This blood is vital to the community to save many lives,” said professor Andrea Ackermann, chair of the college’s nationally accredited nursing program.
 
Blood donations are essential for surgeries, treatments and emergencies. 
 
Along with medical professionals from the New York Blood Center, members of the college’s Nursing Student Union were among those assisting at the event. 
 
Some 37 percent of Mount students are preparing for careers in healthcare. The college recently launched its new physician assistant program (pending Accreditation-Provisional). Students will be immersed in the Mount’s rigorous natural sciences undergraduate curriculum for three years. Following completion of the undergraduate requirements, successful applicants will complete their studies at the Mount’s physician assistant program in two years, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s in physician assistant studies.
 
The Mount offers nationally accredited nursing degree programs, and also pre-med, pre-veterinary, pre-dental, podiatry, and physical therapy studies.
