COLLIN COUNTY – Collin College will offer online information sessions for the new Bachelor of Science (BSN) degree from 5:30-6:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8, and Wednesday, May 6.

 

The first classes for the new bachelor’s degree began in January. According to Dr. Betty Veasy, Collin College director of the RN-to-BSN program, area hospitals that are working toward obtaining magnet status may require nurses to hold BSN degrees.

 

“The college’s BSN degree is unique because nurses can schedule their clinical requirements at times that best suit their schedules, and they can also earn a Sigma Theta Tau Nurse Manager Certificate. In addition, nurses can attend the RN-to-BSN program part time. Whether nurses choose to return to school part time (one day per week) or full time (two days per week), we know they will be glad they chose Collin College,” Veasy said

 

Collin College serves more than 59,000 credit and continuing education students annually and offers more than 100 degrees and certificates, including new Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Bachelor of Applied Technology (BAT) in Cybersecurity degrees. The only public college based in Collin County, Collin College is a partner to business, government and industry, providing customized training and workforce development. In addition, the college operates the Collin Higher Education Center, which has an enrollment of more than 3,300 each year in partnership with The University of Texas at Dallas, Texas Woman’s University, Texas A&M Commerce, Texas Tech and the University of North Texas.
