California welcomes the first cohort of students in the APIN Program!

Last week seventy students began their ADN to BSN journey with summer courses at CSU Los Angeles. Lorie Judson, APIN Project Director and I had the opportunity to address the students and were truly inspired by their enthusiasm and commitment to the program. The summer coursework for these students is intense but they expressed being up for the challenge and grateful for the opportunity. We look forward to working with them and plan to post periodic updates on the program.  Photo below taken at CSU Los Angeles on June 17, 2013.

Jose Coronado Congratulations. Education has to be a priority in the nursing profession. Nurses are front line in the health care system. Only education can give the Nurses the leadership in order to obtain a better health in our country.

Congrats CSU Los Angeles. Education is essential in our evolving nursing profession. There are hospitals in California that are currently magnet status and require a BSN to be hired and also keep a current position. APIN programs are needed, especially for the working nurse. I am currently enrolled in an ADN to MSN program for the working RN and it has changed the way I think, react, and approach certain situations not only in my workplace but in other aspects in my life as well.
