FSW nursing program to hold information sessions at three campuses

February 2, 2018
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Florida SouthWestern State College's Department of Nursing will hold a series of informational sessions for those interested in the Associate in Science in Nursing (ASN) degree at three FSW campuses this spring.

FSW's nursing program offers two degree programs that are accredited by the accreditation commission for education in nursing (ACEN): the associate in science degree in nursing (ASN) to prepare entry level registered nurses (RN) and the bachelor of science degree in nursing (RN to BSN) for Florida licensed RNs who want to advance their education and expand their employment opportunities in this high demand profession.

LPNs are offered the gold standard pathway as entrance into the ASN degree program. FSW's Associate Nurse Evening and Weekend (ANEW) program is a flexible, hybrid nursing education offering with online and clinical training times that provide students the opportunity to fulfill other day activities while earning an ASN degree. Nursing students can seamlessly complete the ASN degree, earn the RN license, and then complete the BSN degree (100 percent online) while actively employed as an RN.

The public is welcomed to attend any of the information sessions below:

Graduates of FSW's RN to BSN program are prepared for career promotions and advancements in nursing to include graduate level education, academia, community health, management, and leadership.
