Atlantic Cape Community College President Dr. Barbara Gaba, Dean of Nursing and Health Professions Myrna Morales-Keklak, and University of Phoenix Assistant Dean of Operations and Faculty Dr. Brandi Morse officially signed a partnership agreement creating a Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) Collaborative Cohort Program between the two institutions of higher learning during a ceremony at the Mays Landing campus on Wednesday, April 26.

“We are very proud to partner with the University of Phoenix to bring this flexible program to Atlantic Cape’s students that provides an open-access opportunity to earn a BSN degree upon successful completion of their RN degree and exam, while lessening the financial burden of earning a college degree,” Gaba said. “This cohort will allow our nursing students to earn credit toward a BSN during their journey here meaning they don’t have to leave Atlantic and Cape May counties to advance their college career.”

The open-ended agreement includes three online programs for Atlantic Cape nursing students, who will be eligible to transfer to the University of Phoenix at a tuition rate of $350 per credit hour and earn their bachelor’s degree without having to leave home. Read more from Downbeach
