As listed on the Volunteer State Community College homepage, the RN Nursing A.A.S Degree program is offering information sessions over the next few months for students interested in applying for the next class starting in June 2020.
The sessions will be conducted on the Gallatin, Livingston, Springfield and Cookeville campuses. The sessions are open and available to anyone interested. Students that are interested in attending the sessions can find dates, times and locations at www.volstate.edu/nursingaas.
The sessions are to help students familiarize themselves with the new RN program as well as the requirements to be accepted into the program. For the nursing program there are GPA and general education requirements making the program competitive.
“They may not know that we have a full Nursing Lab set up on the East Campus with high-tech equipment, including several nursing beds and lifelike patient mannequins for practice,” said Public Relations Specialist, Eric Melcher. The program is fairly new as it just started last year, and the information session will highlight things like the lab and technology on campus.
Students who are interested in pursuing the nursing program can fill out an application for the June classes starting in March, with the deadline being in May
