Statement from Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities President Lola W. Brabham on the NYS Senate’s passage of S.447C:
“On behalf of New York’s 100-plus private, nonprofit colleges and universities, I want to thank the NYS Senate for passing S.447C which, once signed into law, will permit nursing programs in New York to utilize simulation-based learning experiences to help train the nurses the state desperately needs. It is an important step in the legislative process, and we thank Senator Toby Ann Stavisky for her leadership in securing its passage in the State Senate.
“This progress in delivery of nursing clinical education was made possible through close collaboration between CICU member campuses SUNY, CUNY, and the NYS Education Department.
“We look forward to passage of A.3076 in the Assembly and to Governor Hochul signing this much-needed legislation into law.”
