Monroe College begins new BSN program for working nurses

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.
