Rasmussen's Rockford campus adds professional nursing classes

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Rasmussen College has added a Professional Nursing Associate's Degree program at its Rockford and Romeoville/Joliet campuses.

The program will help local students on their paths to become registered nurses, one of the fastest growing healthcare positions in the country.

"RNs have a crucial role in the healthcare industry and need to possess many competencies to meet the demands in the ever changing world of our aging and diverse society. Our Rasmussen College School of Nursing program focuses on the quality and safety factors involved in care, evidence-based practice, and developing leadership skills within our nurses," said Joan Rich, Vice President, Rasmussen College School of Nursing. "The addition of this nursing program will not only support the need for registered nurses in the state, but will produce the quality of nurses that we need in the state."

Students will learn inside the classroom as well as outside, gaining hands-on experience in clinical environments. National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) prep work is also included in the curriculum.

Enrollment is underway and classes will begin in July. For more information, click here.
