Welcome! Many questions about the M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing can be answered by reviewing the pages of this web site, including program-specific FAQs. If you need to contact our administrative offices, please see below.
We often receive inquiries for both child and adult/elder care needs. It is University policy that we recommend that inquiring families check platforms that are built for this purpose, such as a care.com or sittercity.com type of site. You may also find local babysitter/caregiver groups by searching social media platforms like Facebook.
