CMC now offering Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The new Bachelor of Science in nursing degree, also known as the RN to BSN, is based at Colorado Mountain College locations in Spring Valley-Glenwood Springs and Breckenridge. However, since the program involves mostly online learning requiring only occasional visits to the college’s campuses, working nurses throughout the CMC service area and beyond may enroll.
RN to BSN functions somewhat differently than a standard four-year bachelor’s degree, as students must have already attained a level of nursing proficiency. Currently, CMC offers a two-year Associate of Applied Science in nursing, which qualifies students to become licensed registered nurses. To enroll in the college’s new bachelor’s program, students must already have earned their associate degree in nursing and hold an RN license in the state of Colorado, in addition to other requirements.
Colorado Mountain College’s BSN program has been approved by the Colorado Commission of Higher Education, the Colorado Department of Education and the Higher Learning Commission. The nursing program is in progress for submission of the application for candidacy status with the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education( CCNE).
