Fall Registration Open for 3 Courses in Westerly

Starting this September, Rhode Island College will begein offering courses needed to complete a bachelor of science degree in nursing at Westerly Education Center. The first course, Introduction to Writing and Research in Nursing, is open for enrollment and will run for 12 weeks.

This program is designed to accommodate the busy lives of working nurses. Increasingly complex healthcare requires critical competencies, including evidence-based care, health promotion, disease prevention and the use of technology. Registered nurses working at Westerly Hospital, South County Hospital and L&M Hospital can waive the college’s requirement of admittance to its college of nursing.

The R.N. to B.S.N. curriculum includes five nursing courses, and each student must also complete an individualized program that fulfills any outstanding requirements in the liberal arts. RIC will be offering liberal arts courses in Westerly that may be used by R.N. to B.S.N. and any other students interested in starting or completing college degree.

The first course is Introduction to Writing and Research in Nursing. For any questions about the R.N. to B.S.N. Program, please contact Donna Huntley-Newby at DHuntley@ric.edu or 401-456-8925.
