UH program lets nurses earn degree part time

Advertiser Staff

The University of Hawai'i at Manoa School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene is recruiting students for the registered nurse to bachelor of science program on the three major Neighbor Islands.

The nursing program begins in fall 2002 and ends in summer 2004. A group information session is scheduled for prospective students on the Hawai'i Interactive Television System from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday at each island's campus media center.

The distance education bachelor's program is a part time program with generally two courses scheduled per semester. This option allows the registered nurse to work as well as continue work toward a degree. Courses are offered using the Hawai'i Interactive Television system and the World Wide Web.

Some of the admission requirements include acceptance to the University of Hawai'i — Manoa, a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better, completion of a Department of Nursing application, and various prerequisite general education and natural science courses.

Resident tuition is $126 per credit; nonresident tuition is $396 per credit. There is also a $500 per-semester professional fee for all undergraduate nursing programs.

Academic adviser Kate Thompson will make a visit to Maui Community College on Friday (call 984-3525), Kaua'i Community College on Aug. 10 (call 245-8226) and Hawai'i Community College in West Hawai'i on Aug. 13 (322-4856).
