Closure of the RN-BSN Program
(ASN to BSN Bridge Program)
Following a review of the nursing programs in the WellStar School of Nursing, the decision has been made to discontinue the (ASN-BSN Bridge) curriculum option. This was a difficult decision; however, after reviewing the graduation rates from this program over the past three years it was clear that faculty resources used to support this curriculum option should be redirected to other programs within the School of Nursing. We recognize that this decision may be disappointing to students intending to enroll, but this decision is best for all parties since there are many other acceptable options for registered nurses to pursue in order to reach their education goals within and outside of the metropolitan Atlanta area, especially online programs.
Therefore, this letter serves as formal notice that the ASN-BSN bridge program will only accept new applicants in 2014 (deadline for application August 2014, commencement of Bridge Course January 2015) and we will be committed to these students through December 2016.
