Meeting Dec. 2 at GCC for nursing career

THATCHER, AZStudents wishing to pursue a career in nursing are invited to attend an important informational meeting about the EAC/ASU nursing program on Monday, December 2 at 11 a.m. in Room 111 of the Payson Campus. Anyone interested in applying for the GCC/EAC nursing program should attend this meeting as well. 

Students completing their nursing degree through GCC/EAC will be able to take advantage of a new program through Arizona State University to complete their bachelor’s degree in nursing concurrently on the Payson Campus.

“ASU’s program is a cost effective and efficient way to complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing,” said Carolyn McCormies, EAC’s director of nursing. “The information at this meeting will be vital for students in order to prepare themselves for this program.
The Institute of Medicine has a goal of 80% of the nurses in Arizona to have at a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in nursing by 2020,” continued McCormies.

“Currently only just over 20% of Arizona’s nurses have this degree. This is why students interested in nursing should come to find out how this program will benefit them for their future.”

Representatives from ASU, GCC, and EAC will be available to answer questions about this new opportunity. For more information, call (928) 468-8039, or be at the meeting on December 2, at 11 a.m., at the Payson Campus.
