Powerful Partners

The relationship between Colby-Sawyer and Dartmouth Health dates back to 1981 when the college first began preparing nurses at the baccalaureate level. Since then, Colby-Sawyer students have benefited from nursing clinical placements, internships and various other experiential learning opportunities within the state's largest health system and only academic medical center and Level I trauma center.

Today, with help from support from Dartmouth Health and instruction from career healthcare professionals, Colby-Sawyer is proud to offer a Master of Science in Nursing program to further advance the careers of healthcare workers.
