FAU college of nursing recruits Treasure Coast nurses for upcoming nursing programs

Florida Atlantic University’s Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing is recruiting Treasure Coast nurses for its RN-to-BSN, MSN and master’s level FNP programs at its Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute in Fort Pierce, Fla. Deadlines for the programs are fast approaching, according to a
news release.

“We are thrilled to offer these programs to the Treasure Coast, providing needed access for nurses to advance their careers while addressing the critical nursing shortage,” Marlaine Smith, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, dean of the College of Nursing said in the release. “We encourage local nurses to consider taking their next steps with us. We’re committed to providing flexible learning options right here on the
Treasure Coast.”

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the U.S. is projected to experience a shortage of nurses that is expected to intensify as baby boomers age and the need for
healthcare grows.

The FNP program provides the preparation, knowledge and skills needed for the care of children and adults in a primary care setting. Advantages of this program include a flexible schedule with some online classes and clinical sites on the Treasure Coast. The deadline to apply for the FNP program is Feb. 15.

The MSN program, which has an application deadline of June 1, prepares graduates for advanced nursing practice as a holistic nurse, clinical nurse leader, administrator or educator. These concentrations offer flexibility for full or part-time Treasure Coast students, according to the release.

The RN-to-BSN track in the BSN program also offers a flexible schedule, and is for applicants who have completed a diploma or ADN program at an institution accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing Education, Inc., and possess an unencumbered RN license. The deadline to apply to the RN-to BSN-program for the summer 2015 term is April 15 for University undergraduate admission and April 30 for the College of Nursing.
