 If you’re looking for a career that lets you honor your faith and make a real difference in the lives of others, or if you feel called to serve but aren’t sure how to integrate that calling into your job, you may want to explore nursing. 

 Not only is nursing a great fit for both men and women who want to make a positive impact in the world, it’s a service role in high demand.  Due to the increased need for healthcare services stemming from the Affordable Care Act and an aging population, healthcare providers around the nation are under pressure to employ more caregivers.  In many cases, nurses are the key to their survival.  This fall, Roseman University of Health Sciences is launching a new accelerated nursing degree program to help meet this demand. 

 The program allows students of any age with sufficient college credits and prerequisites--regardless of their academic background--to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in just 15 months. Roseman’s accelerated BSN program combines the convenience of online courses with the hands-on experience of labs and clinical rotations to make sure its graduates will succeed as registered nurses.  The university itself is a private, nonprofit university focused specifically on the health sciences. Its campus is located in South Jordan, where students take their lab courses, while clinical rotations are completed in leading hospitals and healthcare facilities here the Salt Lake Valley. 

 If you’d like to learn more about the accelerated BSN program, stop by the Sandy LDS Employment Center on June 4th between 10am-2pm and speak with Dave Stoddard, director of corporate and community relations. Dave can also be reached at 866-891-8435 . We look forward to seeing you!
