The 护理路径的程序 grants access to top-tier mentors and educators and provides a comprehensive education to help students thrive in their future nursing careers.

森林湖学院 announces the launch of the 护理路径的程序 (NPP)—a reimagined pre-nursing education to maximize access and success in nursing preparation for undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds. 

Each student will gain professional nurse mentors and networking opportunities during their first fall at clinical partner sites including Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital, 安和罗伯特·H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of 芝加哥, and Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.  

"所有护理前课程, students receive weekly academic tutor support and participate in an early immersive nursing internship at Lake Forest Hospital the summer after their first year at the College. These opportunities will open doors for paid clinical opportunities in future years while they are still at the College,“博士说. Shubhik DebBurman, senior director for science partnerships, 护理路径项目, 和Disque D. and Carol Gram Deane Professor of Biological Sciences.

Students participating in the 护理路径的程序 will also participate in the College’s 健康的职业计划 (HPP), which will equip them with the foundation of a liberal arts and sciences curriculum and interprofessional acumen. 通过高压泵, students will gain the critical skills needed to be a well-rounded nurse, including learning how to communicate clearly and effectively, navigate an increasingly global society, and tackle complex problem-solving situations.  

“Nursing is about more than technical skill and knowledge,” said 森林湖学院 President Jill M. 压印垫板,医学博士. “An extraordinary nurse is also well-rounded, 文化主管, critically thoughtful and a masterful communicator. These are the foundational skills taught in a liberal arts education at 森林湖学院. A foundation in the liberal arts helps you become a leader and instills in you the core values needed to be successful in improving patient care outcomes.”   

In conjunction with the 护理路径的程序 launch, the College is also introducing a flexible pathway for students to earn a Master of Science in Nursing for Entry into Nursing Practice degree from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFU). 

Building on an already strong relationship between the two campuses, RFU will offer early conditional admission for select 森林湖学院 students into the program through an accelerated 3+2 program or a traditional 4+2 path, depending on what the student intends to study in their undergraduate career. Students are also able to pursue their Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree at the College of Lake County before completing their final two undergraduate years at Lake Forest. 

“Our Nursing Pathway Program students will get a nursing academic advisor from day one who helps them create an academic plan that can accommodate any major of the student’s choice and complete the curriculum at a speed that’s right for them,”DebBurman说.  

两个机构, among several other entities across the Lake County, 伊利诺斯州地区, are working together to address a projected regional nursing shortage. RFU的新 护理教育到劳动力路径 will identify diverse Lake County high school students who want to become nurses and guide them through high school, undergraduate degree completion at 森林湖学院, RFU的MSN-ENP项目.   

“Nurses have proven to be among the greatest heroes of the pandemic,” said RFU President and CEO Dr. 温迪Rheault. “葡京会app手机版下载现在比以往任何时候都更需要他们. We’re hoping to inspire more young people to enter the nursing profession and practice in their communities. We’re confident that we can graduate the nurses our clinical partners need to help improve quality of care and patient outcomes.”
