SAC TO OFFER NEW FOUR-YEAR NURSING PROGRAM
San Antonio College will soon offer a new program leading to a bachelor’s of science degree in nursing.
The first of its kind at Alamo Colleges, the “RN to BSN” program will enable licensed registered nurses who already have a two-year associate degree to complete a course of study resulting in a bachelor’s degree.
“This is a major milestone for us,” said SAC President Dr. Robert Vela. “RN to BSN will further enhance SAC’s reputation as a leader in nursing education and help us to be even more intentional in our mission to serve the San Antonio community.”
The bachelor of science in nursing degree program has received approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. The commission has authorized a substantive change committee to visit the institution. The first cohort is projected for Fall 2021.
Founded in 1967, SAC’s nursing program is the largest in San Antonio, offering students a two-year course of study to earn an associate of applied science degree in nursing. (https://www.alamo.edu/sac/news-events/)
