From Cape Cod Community College:
To meet what is clearly an increasing need, Cape Cod Community College (CCCC) has added a second information session for former Quincy College (QC) Nursing students who are seeking alternatives following the decertification of that institution’s program by the Massachusetts State Board of Nursing. The Cape College is inviting QC nursing students to come to the West Barnstable campus either Wednesday June 13th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. or Tuesday June 19th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the upper floor Solarium of the Lorusso Applied Technology Building.
Barbara Murphy MSN, RN, CNE, Program Director for Nursing at CCCC will lead both sessions, joined by Director of Admissions Matt Cormier. The two will discuss the requirements for entry into the program, various pre-enrollment options students might have to complete pre-requisite courses, and what options might exist for the transfer of credits, based on what has already been completed at Quincy College. Adding to that discussion will be Nursing Student Advisor Mary “Mitzi” Anderson, and Alison Frisbie Coordinator of Advising and Counseling CCCC.
“We are getting a steady stream of calls about alternatives for the Quincy Nursing students,” said Matt Cormier Director of Admissions at CCCC. Because of scheduling conflicts, a significant group were finding it hard to make the Tuesday date, so we’ve created another session that will take place about a week later, to try to help them out,” he added.
Last month, the State Board of Registration in Nursing voted to de-certify Quincy College’s Nursing program, withdrawing the ability of Quincy graduates to sit for state licensure after completing their course work at the College. Quincy, per state regulation, has been working to help current students transfer into other state board approved programs. Cape Cod Community College has reached out to Quincy administrators, offering to assist, and this information is part of that effort.
