Kathy Dean News Leave a Comment

MOBILE, Ala. – Healthcare is one of the fastest growing career fields in the nation and University of Mobile offers two degree programs specifically designed for adults to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

“With the increased demand for nurses locally, and the retirement of experienced nurses, job prospects are outstanding for our graduates,” said Dr. Kathy Sheppard, dean of the University of Mobile School of Nursing.

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing can open doors to a new career in healthcare or advanced career options and higher pay for those already in the field. A Bachelor of Science in Nursing can also lead to opportunities for graduate level education.

The new Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing is for adults age 23 or over who have at least 60 credit hours of college and have not earned a college degree or have a degree in a field other than nursing. The program starts January 2018 and is geared toward adults who want to make a career change and enter the healthcare field.

The RN-to-BSN Program is for licensed career nurses who want to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

University of Mobile college programs for adults provide each applicant with a Success Coach who will assist students throughout their college career, from application to graduation.

Applications are being accepted now for both programs.
