Advancing BSNs by 2020: Innovative educational progression for success
Nursing Education Perspectives
© Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. As we approach 2020, with limited time to meet the Institute of Medicine goal of 80 percent baccalaureate in nursing by 2020, there is a need for additional innovative academic progression models with seamless progression to obtain a BSN. A community college and university created a new model for educational progression that resulted in the Associates Degree in Nursing/Bachelor of Science in Nursing Collaborative Program, the first of its kind in this state. The program utilizes the ADN traditional curriculum during the fall/winter semesters, completing the BSN-based curriculum in the spring/summer semesters at the university.
