Dallas, PA — The Center for Adult and Continuing Education at Misericordia University will host an Adult Learner Night on Wednesday, Jan. 5 from 4-7 p.m. in Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall. The snow date is Jan. 6.

The event is open to adult learners interested in obtaining more information about Misericordia University’s undergraduate and graduate programs. It is also open to those who have general questions about entering or returning to college. Guests can drop in at their convenience and speak with faculty and representatives from admissions, adult education and financial aid. Common topics include credit transfer, credit for life experiences, financial aid eligibility, evening and weekend class schedules at the campus in Dallas, accelerated formats (Expressway), certificate programs and online courses.

Misericordia offers more than 40 majors and certificate options, including nine program choices for nursing, including the Part-Time Evening Nursing Program. Recently developed programs include an online MBA and an online RN to BSN, as well as the health care informatics certificate. All of Misericordia’s programs are fully accredited.

Master’s degrees are available in education, business administration, organizational management, nursing, occupational therapy (weekend program for certified occupational therapy assistants and those pursuing a second degree), and the post-professional program for practicing therapists in occupational therapy. The university also offers certificate programs for nurse educator, post-master’s family nurse practitioner, a post-professional certificate in pediatrics, and the geriatric care manager certificate.

In recent national surveys of both traditional age and adult students, Misericordia University ranked significantly ahead of similar institutions in several key areas of student satisfaction, including interaction with faculty, career preparation, advisement, academic assistance, and computer, classroom and library facilities.
