Jeff Davis Nursing Partners With University Of Alabama

June 30, 2010

Advanced nursing degrees will be within easier reach for area registered nurses through a new Internet-based partnership between Jefferson Davis Community College and The University of Alabama’s Capstone College of Nursing.

Representatives from Jefferson Davis and UA will formalize the agreement during a partnership signing ceremony July 14.

Representatives from UA scheduled to attend the ceremony, include Dr. Sara Barger, dean of UA’s Capstone College of Nursing, and Dr. Jeanette VanderMeer, assistant professor in the Capstone College of Nursing and coordinator of the program, known as RN Mobility.

Through the use of the Internet, participants can complete the required nursing courses for the BSN degree in one year, without facing the restrictions of being in class on a specific time and day. Instead, RN students have the flexibility of choosing the best time to go online and complete the requirements. Clinical activities are designed on an individual basis, and efforts are made to arrange locations and times convenient to students.

UA’s Capstone College of Nursing has established similar partnerships with 16 Associate Degree in Nursing program sites at community colleges and universities and 10 clinical agencies.

    Will you have to pay a higher rate to get the degree from the University of Alabama? Do you know what classes will be required?
