Fulton-Montgomery Community College Awarded SUNY Nursing Emergency Training Fund

Posted: June 9, 2022 — Fulton-Montgomery Community College is responding to the need for more healthcare workers across the region. FMCC has been awarded the SUNY Nursing Emergency Training Fund which totals nearly $94,000. Because of this recent investment, FM will be adding additional seats for our Nursing program this Fall.

Diana Putnam, Provost and Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs stated that “This grant will enable us to purchase more equipment that will be utilized this Fall to enhance our students training throughout the program.”  In response to additional needs within the healthcare field, we are adding additional seats for our Phlebotomy, CNA, and Medical Administrative Assistant programs for this Fall as well.

Governor Hochul and SUNY are working to offer these types of grants to SUNY campuses to expand healthcare offerings within the SUNY system. FM’s Nursing faculty are answering the call by taking on these additional students right away and keeping the application open for this Fall. The application closed in early January but will now reopen for the admittance of additional students.

Eileen Casey, Nursing Director at FM, understands the importance of making a difference in peoples lives. “Join a profession where the difference you make, makes all the difference” stated Casey. Casey goes on to say that this program is especially rewarding as the Nursing field has so many different career paths a student can take. Fulton-Montgomery Community college will continue to add students into these programs until capacity is reached. Please contact admissions at 518-736-3622 ext: 8301 on more information about these programs.
