RN to BSN Program Description
Ana G. Mendez University – Gurabo Campus (AGM-G) has submitted a proposal in accordance <br>with Code of Maryland Regulations 13B.02.01.08I, ‘Further requests by institution’ that has <br>received extended operational approval. AGM-G would like to offer the new RN to BSN. <br>AGM-G has a certificate of approval from the state of Maryland valid through August 31, 2022, <br>at the site located at 11006 Veirs Mill Road, Suite L-1, Wheaton, MD 20902. <br>Program descriptions for the proposed program: <br>RN to BSN: The Bachelor of Science in Nursing, with the track RN to BSN option, prepares the <br>registered nurse for additional responsibilities and positions within the healthcare environment. <br>Building on the framework of knowledge, skills, and competencies acquired during the pre- <br>licensure nursing program, the coursework will further develop the nurse in providing and <br>leading care to diverse populations across the lifespan. The dual language RN to BSN program is <br>the only one of its kind in the United States. The program offers nurses the opportunity of <br>completing a baccalaureate degree in nursing (BSN) while developing both their academic <br>English and Spanish language skills throughout the curriculum. Each course, including the <br>technical nursing courses, will be offered in both languages alternating the language each week. <br>The program is 128 credits.
