CMC to offer bachelor’s in nursing starting Aug. 25
Colorado Mountain College will offer a bachelor’s degree in nursing for registered nurses beginning Aug. 25 — the first day of the fall semester.
The new Bachelor of Science in nursing degree, also known as the RN to BSN program, will be based at Colorado Mountain College locations in Spring Valley-Glenwood Springs and Breckenridge. However, since the program involves mostly online learning requiring only occasional visits to the college’s campuses, working nurses throughout the CMC service area, including Steamboat and Routt County, may enroll.
Residents living in the taxing district are eligible for the in-district tuition of $140 per credit.
RN to BSN functions somewhat differently than a standard four-year bachelor’s degree, as students must have already attained a level of nursing proficiency. Currently, CMC offers a two-year associate degree of applied science in nursing, which qualifies students to become licensed registered nurses.
To enroll in the college’s new bachelor’s program, students already must have earned their associate degree in nursing and hold an RN license in the state of Colorado, in addition to other requirements.
The college received approval July 8 from its accrediting body, the Higher Learning Commission, to offer the new bachelor’s degree. For more information, visit http://www.coloradomtn.edu/bsn or call 800-621-8559.
