The South Puget Sound Community College Nursing Program is now accepting applications for its revamped Nursing Program.
“We’ve redesigned the nursing program here at South Puget Sound to meet the needs of 21st century healthcare,” new Associate Dean of Nursing Laurie Choate said.
The program redesign centered on new technology and practices in the field, as well as health care reform changes that have impacted the nursing profession. Not only has the redesign strengthen the program’s nursing education, but also improved the quality of instruction. Redesigned curriculum has been crafted to meet both localized needs as well as the recently announced statewide direct transfer agreement.
Nursing Professor Jillian Heist said the redesign also includes “updated evidence based practice standards which we will utilize to educate future nurses to meet 21st century health care needs.” She added the program is taking an innovative approach to delivery and organization of curriculum as well.
The program’s effort has centered, ultimately, on helping nursing students succeed in the field.
“Our focus is on student success,” Choate said. “We are here to help you achieve your goals of graduating.”
