Announcing partnership with Huggins Hospital

Saint Joseph’s College has recently announced a new educational partnership with Huggins Hospital in Wolfeboro, N.H. Through the partnership, Huggins’ 500 employees will have access to Saint Joseph’s online course offerings at discounted tuition.

Described by its vice president of nursing Susan Dionne as “small but mighty”, Huggins is a critical access hospital with 25 acute care beds. According to Dionne, a relationship with Saint Joseph’s helps rural hospitals like Huggins to better serve its patients.

“It helps us stay vibrant,” said Dionne. “Employees who enroll at Saint Joseph’s bring back new knowledge. That’s beneficial for us and, ultimately, beneficial for our community.”

With over 46 partners representing 354 employers across the nation, Saint Joseph’s prides itself on its ability to meet the needs of working adults. 

“We recognize that busy health care professionals need flexible options to pursue their education, and we look forward to working with Huggins Hospital students,” said Suzanne Murphy, assistant director of continuing education and training at Saint Joseph’s.

Saint Joseph's College, a liberal arts and professional college since 1912, has offered distance education since 1976. Its online   programs include undergraduate and graduate degree programs in business administration, education, nursing, health administration, accounting, theology, long-term care and radiologic science.
