A partnership between three Maryland universities and Carroll County's community college are making it easier for nurses to keep up with industry standards.
Carroll Community College signed a memorandum of understanding this summer with Towson, Stevenson and Frostburg universities that will allow students working toward an associate degree in nursing to accelerate their studies to obtain their Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
Once a student applies for Carroll Community College's nursing program, that student can apply to one of the three universities Jennifer Fritzges, interim nursing program director at Carroll, said. The program works so that students can get their associate degree, get a job and continue to work on their bachelor's degree.
Within about a year, they should be able to come out with a BSN, she said.
