Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 13, 2014
Concorde Career Colleges is launching a new Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree program at their Dallas, Texas campus. The first classes in this new program begin the week of January 27, 2014. Students will be able to earn this Associate of Applied Science degree and become an essential member of a healthcare team in as little as 15 months.
Concorde’s Nursing program provides students with the necessary skills to enter the healthcare workforce as a skilled and confident professional nurse who will provide patient care, educate patients, and ultimately make decisions that will impact patient healthcare outcomes.
Between 2012 and 2022, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects registered nurse employment growth of 19%.* This demand is partially attributed to new healthcare mandates along with an aging population of nurses who will be retiring in large numbers in the next 10 years. The industry will also see increased growth as nursing positions continue to expand beyond hospitals and physician offices.
“We are excited to announce the launch of our new Nursing program in Dallas with a simultaneous launch of our online RN to BSN program,” said Patrick A. Albert, Concorde CEO. “We look forward to our inaugural students’ graduations and career placements. With the need for skilled nurses in such high demand, these two programs will have a profound impact on our students’ development and their next steps toward a lifelong career in healthcare.”
The Concorde Dallas campus is located just off the Lyndon B Johnson Freeway (I-635) and a mile from the North Central Expressway (US-75). In addition to Nursing (AAS) program, the campus also offers programs in Dental Assistant, Medical Assistant, Medical Office Administration, Vocational Nursing, Dental Hygiene (AAS), Surgical Technology, Respiratory Therapy (AAS), and Physical Therapist Assistant (AAS).
Concorde Career Colleges has been training medical professionals for nearly 50 years. Concorde has 16 campuses in 8 states and is one of very few colleges in America to offer only healthcare education and training.
