Expanded Curriculum (RN to BSN) in School of Professional Studies
RALEIGH, N.C., April 8, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, is proud to announce it is expanding its curriculum to include a Bachelor’s program specifically designed for Registered Nurses with an Associate’s Degree in Nursing or Diploma in Nursing. The RN to BSN will be offered online in the School of Professional Studies (SPS), and will be led by Dr. Molly Curry, Director of Health Sciences Programs and Associate Professor at WPU.
With courses beginning in the 2014 fall semester, the program will be among the most affordable and competitive RN to BSN programs in the Triangle. Additionally, graduates will have lifetime access to Career Services at WPU, and the opportunity to work individually with trained advisors who will help them chart the next step in their professional lives. A total of 120 credit hours will be required to earn the B.S in Nursing.
Curry, who has spent nearly 20 years in higher education and the health industry, will be responsible for developing and maintaining the program’s curriculum, accreditation, and overall outcomes, as well as teaching courses, recruiting students, and implementing quality improvement measures.
Before coming to WPU, Curry served as Chair of the BSN program at Cabarrus College of Health Sciences, and worked for 19 years in nursing education and critical care. She earned an ASN from Wilkes Community College, a BSN from George Mason University, a MSN with a focus in Health Systems Management from Queens University, and a DNP from the University of South Carolina.
“We understand the need to provide our students with up-to-date curriculum in an ever-evolving job market,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “We expect the RN to BSN to develop into a flagship program that will help our students land leading roles in the careers of tomorrow.”
“I am thrilled to be a part of the WPU community and helping establish this program,” Curry said. “Nurses are more in-demand than ever and need the skills to lead the transformation of healthcare. We believe WPU can be the launching point for established RNs to further achieve their career and life goals.”
