WEST READING, Pa. -

Two organizations are teaming up to give nursing students in our area some new options.

The Reading Hospital and Medical Center and Alvernia University announced Tuesday they've formed a partnership.

Students at the hospital's School of Health Sciences will now also be enrolled at Alvernia.

After completing the program, they can continue their education at Alvernia to work towards a bachelor's degree in nursing.

The program will begin this fall.
