)-- Remington College of Nursing will hold its first graduation ceremony on Sunday, January 31st at 1:00 pm at the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center in Sanford. The address is 201-203 S. Magnolia Ave.
Remington College of Nursing offers an accelerated 12-month Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program* designed for people who already have a bachelor of science or higher degree in a different field but want to make a career change and switch to the field of nursing.**
Classes are held on a brand new campus in Lake Mary. It features modern classrooms and a clinical simulation laboratory, which contains human patient simulators, mannequins and medical equipment. The goal is to simulate the same challenges in the classroom that students may face in a nursing environment.
Remington College of Nursing has developed relationships with more than a dozen health care facilities in the Orlando area to offer students clinical opportunities in addition to their classroom work, including the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Nemours Clinics, South Seminole Hospital and Hospice of the Comforter.
“Our program is unique in that people who have a Bachelor of Science degree can get their nursing degree in as few as 12 months,” said Karin Polifko, Vice President of Nursing Operations. “Our program is designed to help address the shortage of nurses across a variety of healthcare fields.” **
