RSU is now offering its Associate Degree in Nursing Program Bridge option in Bartlesville, designed for paramedics and licensed practical nurses to “bridge” into registered nursing.

After completing the Bridge program, students will be qualified to take the registered nursing (R.N.) licensure exam.

Students may complete all of the program’s prerequisite courses and the second year of the associate degree program at the Bartlesville campus through traditional classes, distance learning classes or online.

Students can take advantage of two new 1,000 square-foot, handicap-accessible science labs designed for biology and physical science lab courses. Students will complete their clinical rotations at area hospitals including Jane Phillips Medical Center in Bartlesville.

RSU is receiving support from the Bartlesville Community Foundation, the Mary K. Chapman Foundation, AEP/PSO and Jane Phillips Medical Center to launch the nursing program in Bartlesville.

According to recent projections from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than one million new and replacement nurses will be needed by 2016 to meet current and projected needs in the health care industry.
