Reading, PA (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
Alvernia University has joined Montgomery County Community College’s University Center initiative to offer their popular RN to BSN program to its first cohort of MCCC students this fall.
The program offers a seamless transition for MCCC RN graduates who want to complete their BSN. The RN to BSN blended online format conveniently delivers an accredited program to busy students with families and the working professionals of eastern Pennsylvania.
"We can always rely on the Registered Nurse as the lifeblood of the healthcare system, even during these changing times. We are excited to provide a solution for professionals to continue working and providing care while conveniently completing their bachelor’s degree,” says Mary Arbogast, BS, RN, CNOR, CST, Nursing and Healthcare Outreach Coordinator at Alvernia University.
Seats are still available for the Aug. 26 start. MCCC students who enroll in the program receive a 20% tuition scholarship and are eligible for tuition deferment.
A Bachelor of Science in Nursing is considered a standard requirement for RNs seeking broader professional responsibilities and career opportunities. Designed for registered nurses, the program features flexible schedules, blended class formats and a simplified admissions process.
