Nursing Students
Nursing students think critically and problem-solve in COM’s new state-of-the-art learning facility.

College of the Mainland (COM) invites the community to explore a rewarding future in nursing during its Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) open house on Aug. 4 at 7 p.m. in the STEAM Building, Room 120 at the COM main campus. Prospective students will discover all that COM’s renowned nursing program has to offer during the interactive event where students can complete an on-the-spot application and pre-advising, participate in nursing facility tours, meet with nursing faculty and more.

Prompted by the high demand from hospitals for nurses with baccalaureate-level preparation, the RN to BSN degree allows nurses to expand their professional roles in health care and gain access to leadership opportunities. Students in the program gain a broader understanding of the nursing profession and learn to effectively navigate complex situations through a comprehensive research project focused on national quality standards for patient care.

  • Almost fully online
  • Affordable community college tuition rate at less than half the cost of a four-year university
