Beebe School of Nursing to hold Open House Nov. 14
Beebe Healthcare’s Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing invites anyone interested in entering the rewarding and challenging field of nursing to attend the school’s semiannual Open House from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14.
Ginny Rickards, MEd, RN, admissions chair, will conduct information sessions every 30 minutes (last session begins at 5 p.m.) to discuss educational opportunities at the school for those interested in the two-year, four-semester curriculum that begins each August. Representatives from the University of Delaware’s associate in arts degree option will also be available to answer questions.
The school is behind Beebe Healthcare’s Medical Center in Lewes.
The School of Nursing program offers comprehensive nursing education, providing education in basic nursing concepts, advanced technology, and critical care nursing. The curriculum is known for providing optimal, hands-on clinical experience that is more accessible due to the proximity of the medical center.
Upon completion, graduates are well prepared for licensure and entry-level nursing practice. Articulation agreements with Wilmington University and the University of Delaware facilitate the student’s opportunity to obtain a bachelor’s degree. This degree can be obtained in one additional year with Wilmington University or with a completion plan at the University of Delaware.
Prerequisite college courses and a Certified Nursing Assistant Course are required prior to enrollment in the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing program. For more information and to register for the Open House, call the School of Nursing at 302-645-3251.
