ABSN Open House Feb. 23rd

February 8th, 2010

Pineville, LA. The Louisiana College School of Nursing will host an open house on Tuesday, February 23rd  at 5:30 p.m. in the Granberry Conference Center on the campus of Louisiana College. This event is for anyone interested in learning more about the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (A.B.S.N) degree.

 The A.B.S.N. program at LC began one year ago. “This program allows individuals who already have a Bachelor’s Degree an alternative route to enter the nursing profession,” explained Dr. Kimberly Sharp, Dean of Nursing and Allied Health at Louisiana College. “This is a full-time, 16 month accelerated course of study that will require a large commitment on the part of students,” said Sharp.

The open house is an opportunity for prospective students to meet Dr. Sharp and other LC nursing faculty, learn about admission policies, pre-requisites, tuition, financial aid and scholarships.

 Applications are being accepted until March 1st. For more information about the A.B.S.N. program and the open house on Thursday, February 11th call (318) 229-3796 or e-mail
