After Saint Joseph's abrupt decision two weeks ago to temporarily suspend operations come May, questions regarding its ability to remain an accredited institution during the suspension are still unanswered, as previously reported by the Journal & Courier. Whether the college will be able to fix its finances and reopen is also up in the air. Spencer Conroy, vice president for business affairs, this past week wrote in a layoff notice to the state that although leaders hope the suspension is temporary, it's "expected to be permanent in nature." Still, the college has said that it will keep the nursing program in Lafayette active during the suspension because it is located off campus. Saint Joseph's and the St. Elizabeth School of Nursing have held a cooperative nursing program since 2004. The partnership with the college is essential because it allows students to earn a bachelor's of science from Saint Joseph's, along with a diploma in nursing from St. Elizabeth.
