Information Sessions Set for New Nursing Program
Angelo State University nursing faculty will offer a pair of information meetings on Monday, Feb. 21, and Thursday, Feb. 24, to introduce the public to a new program that will allow Registered Nurses to pursue a Master of Science in Nursing.
The first session will be at 10 a.m. Monday and the second will be at 6 p.m. Feb. 24. Both sessions will be in Room 241 of the Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building, 2333 Vanderventer Ave.
The nursing program, which will begin in the fall, will allow registered nurses with an associate degree from an accredited nursing program to pursue a master's degree in nursing without completing all of the bachelor's degree requirements. The accelerated program will allow those who complete the program to receive both bachelor's and master's degrees in nursing.
The nursing courses will be available to students on the Internet. The master's degree includes Clinical Nurse Specialist and nurse educator options, allowing graduates to go into advanced nursing practice or nursing education in a variety of settings.
ASU's Nursing Department offers an online Bachelor of Science in Nursing program for Registered Nurses, as well as several other degree plans. The options range from plans for entering freshman who want to become Registered Nurses to transition programs for Licensed Vocational Nurses.
