Case Study: Del Mar College - Building Bridges to the Bachelors of Science in Nursing
Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas is working hard to boost the supply of qualified nurses trained and ready to enter the workforce, particularly in the South and West, where the need for nursing services is forecast to be the most acute.
As the population ages and access to healthcare increases, nursing programs around the country are grappling with how to meet projected demand for skilled nurses.
“One of our biggest goals is to increase the number of BSN-qualified nurses.” says Dr. Vangie De Leon, Chairperson, Department of Nursing Education at Del Mar. “Building stronger relationships with four-year institutions will be key to meeting that objective.” NursingCAS, a centralized application system that helps nursing programs manage the application process more efficiently, is proving to be an important platform to help us achieve that goal.”
