Hodges University Invites Aspiring Nurses to Attend Informational Sessions

As the demand for qualified nursing professionals continues to grow in Southwest Florida, Hodges University is meeting that demand with its Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) program. The university’s School of Health Sciences invites aspiring nurses to attend one of its three upcoming BSN informational sessions.

Hospitals and health care facilities are looking for qualified nurses to fill vacancies throughout the area, specifically those with a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

Jessica Palumbo, director of nursing at Hodges University, explains, “These informational sessions will enable prospective students to meet the Hodges nursing faculty who will discuss the program’s curriculum and format, which allows students to enter the workforce one semester earlier than other traditional programs. Students will also have the opportunity to tour our state-of-the-art nursing simulation laboratory.”
Hodges’ nursing program consists of two parts:

● Earning an Associate in Science degree in biomedical sciences, which consists of four semesters of full-time study in the nursing track.
● Earning a Bachelor of Science in nursing, which consists of four full-time, consecutive semesters focused on the art and science of nursing.

Students receive a strong foundation to continue their education, and graduates of the program are able to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam, a requirement for licensure as a registered nurse.

The sessions will be held from 5:00-6:00 p.m. May 8, June 13 and July 25, on the Naples campus in the Stock Building Nursing Lab, which is located at 2647 Professional Circle, Naples, FL 34119.
