Sources: Seton Hall University; Project Sleep

The Seton Hall University Graduate Nursing Program offers licensed nurses the opportunity to pursue a clinical specialty at the graduate level, as well as provide college graduates who have a non-nursing degree the opportunity to enter the profession through an accelerated master’s degree program.

Register for the Health Sciences Graduate Open House on March 30, or the Graduate Recruitment Open House on April 24. Those interested in a 4-year Bachelor of Science In Nursing (BSN) degree should visit the Seton Hall College of Nursing site.

Each year, Congress crafts spending bills that provide federal funding for medical research, including for sleep disorders. Representative Adam Schiff, a champion for the sleep disorders community, is leading a congressional sign-on letter asking the Appropriations Committee to include recommendations that encourage additional research and public health activities focused on sleep disorders.
