DYC Nursing School offers new online RN-to-BSN degree program
Buffalo, New York – June 6, 2013 – D’Youville College School of Nursing will offer an additional option for its RN-to-BSN nursing program beginning this fall.
The new RN-to-BSN degree program educates New York State licensed RNs seeking a bachelor's degree. One hundred percent of the courses offered will be available online, giving students the opportunity to enhance their potential for employment or advancement without giving up their day jobs. It can be taken full time, which would allow for completion in approximately two years, or completed part time.
According to the program coordinator, Michelle Mollica, MS, RN, assistant professor, more and more healthcare providers are requiring nurses to have at least a bachelor’s degree in nursing. RNs are choosing to obtain their bachelor’s degree not only for job security but also to continue their studies to become an advanced practice nurse.
Mollica said that they anticipate enrolling 10 students for the first cohort, with classes starting in August.
“Our school of nursing has a long history and excellent reputation in the field. That, along with a 50 percent tuition discount for New York State licensed RNs makes our program extremely attractive,” she said.
