A new training program in South Jersey aims to address a nursing shortage by training people who have already earned a college degree through an accelerated program that focuses on the principles of compassionate care.

Dr. Anthony Mazarrelli, of Cooper University Hospital, said the school’s partnership with Bayada and Thomas Edison State University is intended to graduate graduates and build a unique training program.

The program is “very innovative and produces nurses who may have a little bit of a different skill set or a way of approaching things that is more in line with what they call the Bayada way,” Mazarrelli said. “We have some fantastic nurses at Cooper and we are excited to be part of a nursing curriculum that produces nurses who are very similar to the nurses we have today.”
