The Monroe College School of Nursing, which has campuses in the Bronx and New Rochelle, N.Y., is reaching out to active nurses with a new BSN program this fall.
Open only to RNs, it will enable nurses to attain their bachelor’s degree in four semesters over 15 months, according to a news release. Students will attend class one day per week. Some semesters also include a day per week of clinicals, on a flexible schedule.
“We know as well as anybody that a working nurse just can’t conform a work schedule to fit a course schedule, so we’ve gone the other way,” Deborah Little, RN, MSN, CNE, chairwoman of the school of nursing, said in a news release. “We’ve arranged the course schedule so that RNs can continue to do their life-saving work and at the same time advance their careers. While it might seem that nothing’s ever easy for a hard-working nurse, we’ve made it so that advancement and development are well within reach.”
Applicants for the program must hold an RN license, an ADN or nursing diploma with a GPA of 2.5 or higher, and two years of full-time work experience.
