RN-to-BSN information session moves to Zoom format

Information for students wishing to enroll in the RN-to-BSN program at University of Houston-Clear Lake at Pearland can find out all they need during two upcoming virtual sessions to be July 14. Program Director and Assistant Professor of Nursing Karen Alexander said that the information sessions would be live, not pre-recorded, and accessible on Zoom.

“We want students to be able to ask any questions they want, so we are doing it live,” Alexander said. “We will go through a presentation in which we’ll explain our requirements and we will let prospective students see why our program is best.”

She said that students are always closely mentored throughout the program. “We were able to work through the current adverse situation with them very successfully because we had already developed relationships with them in our face-to-face classes,” she said. “It made the transition to online classes this semester much easier. We have learned that establishing relationships and mentoring nurses is what it takes to make our students successful in this program.”
