Mount Aloysius information tonight
CRESSON - Registered nurses interested in earning their bachelor of science nursing degrees are invited to attend an information night at Mount Aloysius College at 6 p.m. today in the college's Wolf-Kuhn Art Gallery. Refreshment will be available.
Mount Aloysius Nursing Division Chief Dr. Rebecca Zukowski noted that the college's RN to BSN program offers convenience, accessibility and is designed for working nurses.
"The entire program can be taken online," she said. "However, we also offer the option of taking classes at the college or in several community locations."
Nationally there is a mandate that RNs move toward achieving their BSN. The degree allows nurses to develop additional skills and assume more responsibility in their work setting.
Information will be presented about financial aid, the admissions process, curriculum and convenience. Faculty and staff will be on hand to present the program and answer any questions.
To register, contact the College's Office of Graduate and Continuing Education at 886-6406 or email email@example.com.
