With an eye toward the future, on Friday, May 10th during National Nurses Week, Chestnut Hill College announced Pennsylvania Board of Nursing’s approval for two new nursing programs within its newly created Department of Nursing and Nursing Clinical Arts Center (NCAC). The first is a traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) pre-licensure program, and the second is an accelerated second-degree BSN pre-licensure program, designed for individuals who already have a bachelor’s degree in another discipline and are looking to become registered nurses.
