Kaplan University’s Augusta, Maine campus is now offering its new Prelicensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program that will not only help fill Maine’s need for qualified nurses, but also assist in closing a persistent skills gap prevalent throughout the state.

Based from Kaplan University’s new 19,500 square foot campus in Augusta, which had its official grand opening this past October, and featuring a state-of-the-art nursing simulation laboratory, the new program is designed to equip students with the education and training needed to offset a decline in the number of qualified nurses as well as other trends.

“The program incorporates our finest technologies including online learning, advanced laboratory space, simulation experiences and partnerships with local healthcare providers,” said Dr. Colleen Dutile, director of nursing at Kaplan University Maine. “Our faculty developed a program that continuously supports the learner. We have integrated content, skills and procedures in order to increase a student’s knowledge and competencies, while providing a foundation for progressively higher levels of nursing practice.”

The curriculum encompasses the instrumental research of the Institute of Medicine’s Future of Nursing Report, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice, and the Quality & Safety Education for Nurse competencies.

Kaplan University’s program combines on-ground courses for all clinical and nursing specific work with online classes for the supporting curriculum in the sciences and liberal arts. Moreover, Kaplan University’s year-round schedule and shorter terms help meet the needs of nontraditional students, many of whom are already working full-time in the healthcare field while pursuing their education part-time. This permits students to complete the full bachelor’s degree program in just over three years.
