Students interested in Collin College’s new Bachelor of Science degree in nursing can tune into two online information sessions this spring.

The sessions will be held April 8 and May 2 from 5:30-6:15 p.m., according to an April 7 release. To sign up, students must email [email protected].

Classes for the nursing degree began in January. Betty Veasy, director of the college’s RN-to-BSN program, said area hospitals are working towards achieving magnet status, which may require nurses to hold BSN degrees.

“The college’s BSN degree is unique because nurses can schedule their clinical requirements at times that best suit their schedules,” Veasy said in the release. “In addition, nurses can attend the RN-to-BSN program part-time.”

Registration for the fall 2020 semester will open April 14 for returning students and April 29 for new students.
