Why is Cleveland Clinic transitioning Huron School of Nursing to Tri-C?

Cleveland Clinic and Cuyahoga Community College have been long-standing partners in education for years. The goal of this transition is to build on the nursing program both organizations have established and provide expanded services at a reduced cost to students.

What led to the decision to transition to Tri-C?

Training the next generation of healthcare providers is essential to continuing to fill the demands on healthcare systems and is a core mission of Cleveland Clinic.

Our decision reflects a national trend since the 1970s, involving diploma programs, such as the one provided by the Huron School of Nursing, which have transitioned from hospital-based curriculums to local community colleges to offer students higher level nursing degrees and meet increasing educational standards for entry-level nurses.

Cuyahoga Community College has recently expanded its nursing program and opened a new state-of-the-art facility in January. We believe these changes will provide expanded, affordable services to students building their careers in the field of nursing.

When will this take effect?

The May 2011 class will be the final class to graduate from the Huron School of Nursing. Students in the Huron School of Nursing have had the ability to transition to Tri-C beginning in January 2011.

What are the benefits of this change to current Huron School of Nursing students?

The advantages to transitioning the program to Tri-C are many:

  • Students will receive an Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS in Nursing)
  • Tri-C's tuition is lower
  • Students will have access to expanded resources and programs
  • Tri-C has recently opened a new, state-of-the-art facility affording students greater access to collegiate resources.
What is the difference in the degree that students receive from Tri-C?

Tri-C students will receive their education in one location (Tri-C) and receive an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Nursing (AAS). Graduates from the Huron School of Nursing earned a diploma and either an Associate of Art or Associate of Science Degree from Tri-C, or an Associate of Science in Health Science from Notre Dame College.

How does this affect current students?

Class of May 2011 The course of study will be uninterrupted May 2011 graduates at Huron School of Nursing. For the class of May 2011, graduation will be held Friday, May 13, 2011. Students who are unable to complete program requirements in May 2011 will be referred to Cuyahoga Community College for further review ( or 216.987.4067).

Will this cost me more?

No, actually one of the benefits students will receive with this change is a decrease in tuition.

How does this affect students who have been accepted into the program for 2011?

Current applicants will be contacted and given the opportunity to apply at Tri-C or the nursing program of their choice.

Who do I contact for more information?

Information will be available through the Huron School of Nursing student services office (216.761.7998) and on Scholar 360. Students can email student services at Questions about financial aid should be directed to student services at the Huron School of Nursing.
