Nursing Advancement Education

by Press Release-CCC | Feb 13, 2005
Nursing Advancement Education Camden County College-Seton Hall University will be holding information sessions regarding education for advancement within the nursing profession. The two sessions will be held on Monday, February 14, one at 10:30am and one at 4pm, in the auditorium, Danch CIM Building, on the Blackwood Campus of Camden County College.

According to the American Hospital Association, there is a nationwide nursing shortage -- currently more than 100,000 vacancies -- throughout the medical field. Issues contributing to this critical dearth include unclear career opportunities for currently practicing nurses.

These sessions aim to educate local registered nurses and RNs-to-be, many of whom are Camden County College graduates or students, about the options that advanced degrees could hold for them. Better-educated nurses will be able to provide better care to patients while advancing within their profession.

CCC has offered co-operative associate's degree programs in nursing with Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing and Helene Fuld School of Nursing in Camden County since 1980. Students complete academic coursework through the college and clinical studies through one of the nursing schools. Students who complete all requirements for either program become eligible to sit for the New Jersey State Registered Nurse Licensure Examination. Fifty to 100 nursing students are among CCC's graduates each year.

Few programs are available in South Jersey for bachelor's degrees in nursing, and even fewer are available for master's degrees in nursing.
