The articulation agreement stipulates that, each year, JCHS will grant priority admission to five qualified Mary Baldwin baccalaureate graduates who seek entry into their accelerated bachelor of nursing program.

JCHS, which traces its history to 1914, is a professional health sciences college, offering the master of science in nursing, physician assistant, and occupational therapy and 10 baccalaureate and associate healthcare programs. The college enrolls approximately 1,000 undergraduate students and 80 graduate students annually.

The new agreement with JCHS comes as Mary Baldwin pursues its own programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician assistant studies within its new Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences.
