WESTMINSTER, Colo. – Information sessions on Wednesday, Nov. 17, will explain a program taught at Front Range Community College for registered nurses with associate degrees to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Metropolitan State College of Denver.
The sessions are from 1 to 2 p.m. and from 4 to 5 p.m. Interested registered nurses should attend one of the sessions. They will learn about application procedures, course and degree requirements, and other information about program entry for fall semester 2011.
Current and prospective FRCC and other community college nursing students are also invited to attend as part of their career and educational-planning process. Pending examination of college transcript, any registered nurse with an associate degree could be eligible for the program, not just graduates of FRCC.
The sessions are in Room B0302 at the Westminster Campus, 3645 W. 112th Ave.
