Nursing students

Rowan College at Burlington County will hold an information seminar on Wednesday, Oct. 26 to discuss improvements to the nursing program – including the new “3+1” option to a bachelor’s of science in nursing and the college’s partnership with Virtua.

The seminar will occur from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26, in the Enterprise Center, room 131. Visit rcbc.edu/nursing to RSVP for this seminar.

“At Rowan College at Burlington County, students can attain a high-quality nursing degree from Rowan University at a fraction of the cost of a BSN at most four-year institutions,” RCBC President Paul Drayton said. “This path to a BSN is quite simply one of the most affordable in the country and is a flagship program for our students.”

Nursing jobs are projected to grow 19 percent by 2022, have a median salary of $65,000 and are increasingly requiring a bachelor’s degree like the one provided by the 3+1 path. The college has also expanded its partnership with Virtua – which is the largest placement location for RCBC nursing and radiography students.

“Now is the perfect time to study nursing at RCBC thanks to our close alignment with Virtua, one of the region’s leading healthcare employers and Rowan University, which has created an incredibly affordable path to a BSN,” said Dr. Karen Montalto, dean of Health Sciences. “We are also planning to open a new state-of-the-art health sciences center in Mount Laurel next fall and have a number of improvements to our admissions process to discuss with potential students.”
