Beebe Healthcare’s Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing to Hold Open House April 14

Beebe Healthcare’s Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing invites anyone who is interested in entering the rewarding and challenging field of nursing to attend the School’s semi-annual Open House on Thursday, April 14, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

 Alison Watson, MSN, RN, Admissions Chairperson, will conduct information sessions every 30 minutes (5:30 last session) to discuss educational opportunities at the School of Nursing for those interested in the two-year, four-semester curriculum which begins each August.  Representatives from the University of Delaware will also be available to answer questions.  The School of Nursing is located behind the Medical Center in Lewes.

            The School of Nursing’s program offers comprehensive nursing education, providing education in basic nursing concepts, advanced technology, and critical care nursing.  The curriculum includes optimal, hands-on clinical experience that is more accessible due to the proximity of the Medical Center.  The new School of Nursing building with state-of-the-art classrooms and simulation labs opened in July 2015.

            Upon completion, graduates are well prepared for RN licensure and entry-level nursing practice.  Articulation agreements with the University of Delaware and Wilmington University facilitate the student’s opportunity to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree.  This degree can be obtained in one additional year with the University of Delaware or Wilmington University.

            Prerequisite college courses are required prior to enrollment in the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing program.  A recent partnership with the University of Delaware Associate’s in Arts Program (AAP) will allow qualified students to take their prerequisite courses through the University of Delaware’s AAP program.  This pathway enables students to simultaneously earn their diploma in nursing, as well as their Associate in Arts degree.  Candidates may be eligible for SEED (Student Excellence Equals Degree) funding in their first year.   For more information and to register for the Open House, please call the School at (302) 645-3251.
