Starting in 2020, Carolinas College of Health Sciences will roll out changes to its Nursing program that will not only benefit its students but will put more nurses into the field sooner.

The college will now offer a May start date for its Associate Degree Nursing program, meaning new ADN students will be admitted three times a year instead of two: in January, May and August. 

The change will allow the college to admit more nursing students overall, and they will complete the program five times a year instead of two, putting more nurses into the field sooner.

“We all know there’s a national nursing shortage. Carolinas College wants to be responsive to that, and admitting more students who complete the program more often during the year will go a long way toward addressing the need that exists,” says Cathy Borysewicz, Associate Degree Nursing program chair.

The college is also planning additional curriculum changes that will benefit students. A new streamlined curriculum will offer a consistent sequence in which nursing students take their specialty courses.

“We’re always adapting to meet the needs of our students, and we think this curriculum change will offer a more natural progression as students move from one course to the next,” says Borysewicz.
