Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
Franklin University of Ohio, a leading educator of working adults, is pleased to announce it has received approval from the Indiana Commission on Proprietary Education (ICOPE) to offer its new B.S. in Nursing (RN to BSN) Major to its College of Health & Public Administration online offerings.
The online degree completion program offers registered nurses* a convenient way to enhance their ability to provide quality patient care and concurrently strengthen their value in the fast-growing nursing profession.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the healthcare industry is expected to create more than 580,000 jobs in nursing over the next decade. And, responding to a growing body of knowledge that shows the relationship between highly educated nurses and improved patient care outcomes, employers increasingly hire, retain, and promote nurses who have earned their BSN.
Franklin University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing Major is especially crafted to build on the unique attributes and expertise of adult learners. As a registered nurse (RN) with an associate’s degree (ADN) or a nursing diploma, the comprehensive coursework can help students acquire stronger clinical reasoning, analytical, and leadership skills.
Comprised of 6-week, all-online courses, the major is designed with the highest industry standards and uses the latest learning and assessment tools.
The curriculum will refine your understanding of the cultural, political, economic, and social issues that affect patient care across the healthcare continuum. It integrates critical analysis with problem-solving in a hands-on approach that is intended to improve your communication skills, as well as your industry expertise.
The studies are underscored by the extensive nursing experience of the program’s highly qualified faculty, as well as Franklin’s tried-and-true online teaching methods and broad offering of healthcare degree programs.
By drawing on shared industry knowledge and incorporating the latest trends in healthcare delivery, Franklin's online Bachelor of Science in Nursing Major offers a relevant, timely, and quality education that prepares students for increased employment opportunities and graduate studies.
The newly introduced Franklin University College of Health & Public Administration provides excellence in healthcare and public administration education by preparing professionals to improve the quality of life in diverse communities through leadership and public service. Undergraduate majors are available in Allied Healthcare Management, Healthcare Information Systems Management, Public Safety Management, Criminal Justice Administration, Healthcare Management, as well as in Safety, Security & Emergency Management.
