EmbanetCompass partners with the University of Arizona to offer an online RN to MS in nursing
As the leading provider of online learning services for the world’s premier institutions, EmbanetCompass is proud to announce their new partnership offering an online RN to MS in Nursing degree with the University of Arizona (UA). Classes are scheduled to start in Winter/Spring 2013.
Ranked among the top 6 percent of graduate nursing programs in the United States, the UA College of Nursing will be offering this 44 credit hour program that features a series of 8-week long courses with admissions three times per year. Graduates of accredited associate degree programs can complete the degree in as few as two years.
U.S. News & World Report ranks the UA among America’s Best Colleges and The Princeton Review lists the university as one of the best colleges in the Western region. The National Science Foundation (2009) ranks the UA #26 in research and development expenditures among public and private universities and colleges and #18 among public universities and colleges.
“As one of the leading graduate nursing programs in the United States, we were looking for a partner that has the same high standards for supporting our students as we have,” stated Joan Shaver, dean of the UA College of Nursing. “In EmbanetCompass, we found superb expertise and look forward to a successful launch of the RN to MS in Nursing degree online.”
“The University of Arizona is a highly ranked and respected research institution and we are privileged to have been selected as their partner to help them to engage students in this unique online RN to MS in Nursing program,” said Steve Fireng, EmbanetCompass President and CEO.
