CCCC and UMass Boston to Showcase RN to BSN Program

Area RN's invited to April 10th information program at CCCC

Representatives of the UMass-Boston Bachelor of Science in Nursing at CCCC program will meet with potential enrollees Monday April 10th from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in top floor Solarium of the Lorusso Applied Technology Building on the West Barnstable campus of the College.  On-site applications will be available, and advisors will be on hand to discuss the admissions process for their unique “RN to BSN” program that is offered on CCCC’s campus.  UMass-Boston’s program is both convenient and flexible, offered through computer assisted, and “face to face” instruction, aimed at the working nurse’s already demanding schedule.

Those not able to attend are encouraged to speak with UMB’s Admissions Counselor Erica McCummings at 617-287-6118, or email the program at [email protected].Stephanie Zuehlke,  an advisor for the  UMass Boston RN to BSN program is also available regularly in the advanced studies office .  Please call  at 508 375 4082 for details. 

This program, offered through CCCC’s Office of Advanced Studies, has been very successful. UMass Boston already has celebrated two graduating classes of the “On Cape” program, and is gearing up to welcome it’s next group of students.

UMass-Boston shapes its program for the day-to-day working Nurse, offering strong individual support and advising from admission through graduation. The program takes place right at the Cape Cod Community College campus, no long commute to Boston. This RN to BSN pathway offers generous transfer and equivalency credits for prior professional nursing study and skills, and the lack of a commute is a major benefit. At the same time, the program is built around the work schedules of today’s healthcare environment. The program’s courses include both “face to face” instruction as well as computer-assisted courses (so called “hybrid” courses) on the West Barnstable campus.

Graduates of the program have repeatedly praised its welcoming environment, academic quality, and program clearly designed by those who understand the working demands of practicing Nurses. Writing about their program, students have commented: “The instructors are extremely empathetic and patient with their students, recognizing each as an individual and helping them to expand on their intrinsic strengths… UMass Boston was generous with its transfer credits…”

Both UMass-Boston, and CCCC’s Nursing Program professionals will welcome questions Monday April 10th starting at 5 p.m. in the top floor Solarium of the Lorusso Building on the West Barnstable campus. The two higher education institutions now welcome all CCCC Nursing Program students directly into the UMB-BSN program, if they wish to participate. Those student move on to the UMass Boston courses after earning their Associate Degree at Cape Cod Community College.
