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.

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.
