  • After more than 25 years of providing quality nurses for the mid-Missouri area, Columbia College is pleased to announce the launch of a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program.
    Courses in the program are designed to enhance complex clinical reasoning, decision-making, collaborative skills, which ultimately contributes to heightened patient safety and better quality processes. Graduates will be prepared to assume advanced roles in nursing management. The fully online program allows students to earn their degree while they work as a registered nurse (RN).
    Linda Claycomb, Chair of the Columbia College nursing department, believes offering the BSN is a game-changer for the already established RN program.
    "This is a tremendous opportunity to take the Columbia College nursing program to the next level," Claycomb said. "We are responding to the needs of the health care industry.”
    Claycomb urged that registered nurses should sign up immediately for any of the five class sessions each year. Each class lasts eight weeks with sessions offered every August, October, January, March and June. Students in this program can earn their degree just as quickly as students attending college full-time. The first classes will start on August 18.
    But first, students must have completed an associate degree in nursing and must have successfully completed the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. To learn more about the nursing program, visit www.ccis.edu/departments/nursing.
