What’s New in Nursing for 2014?
Beginning in the summer of 2014, you can earn your Bachelor’s degree in Nursing right here in Santa Fe. SFCC’s Department of Nursing Education is partnering with New Mexico State University to offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) option to the state-wide common curriculum.
How does it work?
As a member of the New Mexico Nursing Education Consortium (NMNEC), SFCC’s Department of Nursing Education will continue to offer an associate degree in nursing with a newly developed concept-based curriculum, in addition, in collaboration with NMSU, a B.S.N. option of the new curriculum is also available at SFCC. We’re creating a curriculum consistent with Institute of Medicine recommendations to redesign education for all healthcare providers.
New Mexico Governor Susanna Martinez and Secretary of the New Mexico Department of Higher Education Dr. Jose Garcia support the adoption of a common curriculum. SFCC is one of the first associate degree programs to implement the new statewide associate degree program of study. The new curriculum for nursing coursework is scheduled to begin the summer of 2014.
