Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Medical Center to Hold Open House

The Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Medical Center invites those who are interested in entering the rewarding and challenging field of nursing to attend the School’s semi-annual Open House on Thursday, March 22, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Ginny Rickards, MEd, RN, Director of Admissions, will be conducting information sessions every 30 minutes, the last being at 5 p.m., to discuss educational opportunities at the School of Nursing for those interested in the two-year, four-semester curriculum, which begins each August.  The School, established in 1921, is located adjacent to the Beebe Medical Center campus in Lewes.

In October 2011, the Beebe Medical Center Board of Directors renamed the School of Nursing to recognize the generous donation of Margaret H. Rollins, Lewes native and long-time supporter of Beebe Medical Center.

The School of Nursing education program is known for offering comprehensive nursing education, providing education in nursing concepts, advanced technology, and in critical care nursing.  The curriculum also provides optimal, hands-on clinical experience that is accessible due to the proximity of Beebe Medical Center.

Graduates are well prepared for licensure and entry-level nursing practice.  Articulation agreements with Wilmington University and the University of Delaware provide students with an opportunity to obtain a bachelor’s degree.  This degree can be obtained in one additional year with Wilmington University or with a completion plan at the University of Delaware.

Pre-requisite college courses and certification as a nursing assistant are required prior for enrollment in the School of Nursing program.  For more information and to register for the Open House, call the School at (302) 645-3251.
