As the first group of students in the new RN to BSN program at Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences gears up for its second semester of work, a new cohort of nurses seeking bachelor’s degrees will enroll in January.

According to program director Drew Gogian, the incoming class of students represents a wider geographical area, as facilities and practitioners across the state and beyond learn more about the online program based at Mary Baldwin’s Fishersville campus.

“We’ve retained all our current students,” Gogian said of the first cohort. “They’ve successfully registered for spring coursework. They’re enjoying the program and doing an excellent job of managing their work, their personal lives, and their education.”

The RN to BSN curriculum consists of 34 credits and is being offered in a part-time, five-semester track.

Classes begin for the new cohort on January 11.
