  • Presenters
The Institute of Medicine’s landmark 2010 report on the Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health advocated sweeping changes in the education, advancement and practice of Registered Nurses. A key component in the movement toward high quality, patient-centered care was increasing the number of nurses with a baccalaureate education. As a result, a variety of academic progression models emerged. One of the most successful models is the concurrent enrollment program (CEP) between community college associate degree nursing programs and baccalaureate nursing programs. The result is a seamless, cost-effective path to BSN that offers both challenges and benefits to all stakeholders. This webinar will describe the process, challenges and successful outcomes of a large program with multiple academic partners.
Objectives
  • Explore the concurrent enrollment process as a strategy for academic progression and how associate and baccalaureate degree nursing programs are working together to advance nurses to the BSN efficiently and effectively.
  • Describe the challenges, strategies, benefits and outcomes of academic progression from both the associate and baccalaureate degree perspective.
