Information session planned for Accelerated RN to BSN degree: June 20

June 12, 2012

Penn State Greater Allegheny will be holding an information session for registered nurses who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree in nursing. The accelerated nursing curriculum is designed for completion in 10 and a half months. Classes meet one day a week, on the same day for the entire program, which is convenient for working nurses. Classes begin on Aug. 31.

The University's Video Learning Network (VLN) will be used to broadcast the program from Penn State Fayette to Greater Allegheny and two other locations across Pennsylvania. The VLN is a videoconferencing system that enables an instructor to be located in one classroom, while the students are located in multiple classrooms. In a VLN classroom, cameras and microphones are used to broadcast the instructor and students across all sites via TV monitors. Other equipment enables the instructor to share instructional materials, such as PowerPoint presentations, documents, and videos.

The information session about the RN to B.S. in nursing will be held between 3 and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20, in the Frable Building, room 119 on the Greater Allegheny campus.

For more information and to RSVP, contact Barbara Fenton at 412-675-9172 or

The Penn State RN to B.S. program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission, Inc., and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
