Important Changes to the RN-BSN Program Beginning in the July 2021 Term

W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing Renamed and New Term Structures Introduced

Important changes are underway beginning with our School’s new name. We are now the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing and Health Professions. The addition of “Health Professions” will allow us to expand the scope of our endeavors and develop more programs across the healthcare spectrum. More news will be coming this summer about this important change.

Another important transition beginning in the July 2021 term is our shift away from traditional 12-week terms to a new 8-week course format for our RN-BSN students. What these changes will entail:

We are confident that this transition will better accommodate your life and learning style. What’s more, the new 8-week term structure is becoming increasingly popular and broadly adopted by fellow institutions for being more conducive to student success and degree attainment. The modification will also assist you in completing your BSN degree requirements more efficiently and shorten the time to degree completion – a key advantage in your field. Also, by focusing on one course per 8-week session, we are confident that you will have a more immersive learning experience.
