I am currently a LVN and would like to get my RN but the problem is all community colleges are full.
Whittier, CA (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
Integrated Science Program (ISP) offers courses that allow college students seeking advancement in health care professions to complete their science prerequisites in months, not years.
It is common for prerequisite courses to become unavailable during course registration with colleges and universities, creating a challenge for students, especially those who are working adults unable to fit a traditional course schedule into their already busy lifestyle.
"I am currently a LVN and would like to get my RN but the problem is all community colleges are full”, stated Mary, a recent ISP student applicant, “I don’t have time … I work full-time at a hospital as a nurse… I also have 2 daughters that would like to attend for their degrees as well."
ISP is helping students fulfill the much needed prerequisites they need in order to move forward in their education. These students are otherwise stuck in their career.
Apara, a former ISP student who has completed eight science courses through ISP said, “I saw the ISP program, and it was on the weekend, and it said that it was specifically geared toward working adults, which I am. I don’t have the luxury to forfeit working; I have to work.” After successfully completing coursework through ISP, Apara is now one of many ISP students that have turned their studies into a viable career in health care.
ISP prerequisite courses are taught by highly skilled instructors who are professionals in the field. Organic chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, physics, and other prerequisites are offered, and specifically designed to provide working adults with the necessary skills for fields such as medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, and numerous other health care professions.
Face-to-face classes are held on weekends, year-round, and held for full class day sessions to actively engage students in learning applicable skills within their field of scientific study. Courses offered, tuition & fees, and general information for ISP is provided on their website: http://www.integratedscienceprogram.
