January 15, 2014

Jan. 14, 2014 –The Regis College School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions announced it will offer a new Bachelor of Science with a major in Nursing through its collaborative program with Lawrence Memorial and on the campus at Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Medford. The RN-BS program, which begins this January, is for current students and graduates of the Lawrence Memorial/Regis College Associate of Science Program.

“This is really a unique program,” said Nancy Bittner, PhD, CNS, RN, vice president of education for the Lawrence Memorial/Regis College Nursing and Radiography Programs. “It’s an excellent example of our collaboration with Regis College and a remarkable opportunity for our students.”

“For those interested in continuing their education without barriers, this program offers two paths,” said Dean Penelope Glynn, PhD,RN, of the Regis College School of Nursing, Science, and Health Professions. “The first is for those already holding a Bachelor’s degree and an Associate of Science in Nursing, allowing them to earn their Bachelor’ degree with a major in nursing in as little as one semester, and the second is for those for whom an Associate in Nursing is their first degree. While the program may take a little longer for students seeking their first Bachelor’s, Regis is committed to moving the students along as quickly as possible.”
