KEUKA PARK, NY – Keuka College will expand its adult degree completion courses to include its first RN to B.S. nursing cohort at Cayuga Community College’s (CCC) Fulton campus.
Formatted through Keuka College’s Accelerated Studies for Adults Program (ASAP), classes for the RN to B.S. nursing curriculum begin in February 2016.
Some applicants may need additional credits to meet prerequisite requirements for this program. Apply now to ensure you meet the Oct. 16 deadline for prerequisite registration.
“Cayuga Community College welcomes Keuka College to our Fulton campus,” said Janet Nelson, director of adult learning at CCC. “Already a long-standing University Center partner on Cayuga’s Auburn campus, Keuka College’s presence in Fulton will further enhance local access to degree pathways that are convenient for busy working adults.”
Nelson added that Linda Alfieri, director of nursing at CCC, also supports this new collaboration as one that will help Cayuga RN alumni in the Oswego County area advance their career opportunities by achieving a bachelor’s degree.
Designed for registered nurses who wish to earn a bachelor’s degree, the RN to B.S. program consists of 13 courses and 34 credit hours.
Using the cohort model, students complete the program with the same group from start to finish.
Classes meet one night each week for four hours, with additional time outside of class to complete assignments, case studies, projects, online discussions, and group work.
During Keuka College’s RN to B.S. program, students complete coursework in nursing research and evidence based practice, population health, prevention and health promotion, technology integration, inter-professional collaboration, and leadership. Students also participate in a Field Period™ experience which provides practical application outside of the classroom.
Upon graduation, Keuka College students are prepared to specialize in a variety of areas, including community health, school health, home care, leadership and management, or specialty services.
A bachelor’s degree in nursing also paves the way and is required for acceptance into graduate-level nursing programs and advanced nursing practice.
