Thomasville--Thomas University is now offering nursing courses at two area hospitals.  That way instead of having to come all the way to the Thomasville campus, nurses can pursue higher education right where they work.

"Often times a barrier to education can be simply the need to get in a car and travel to a school and find a place to park and go to class," says Susan Otto, TU's Nursing Division Chair.

TU offers degrees for Registered Nurses who have their associates degree but want to get their bachelor's. And two masters degree tracks: one in nursing administration, and one in education.

Courses are offered onsite at Colquitt Regional Medical Center in Moultrie and Capital Regional Medical Center in Tallahassee.
