Albany Technical College will soon offer students a new degree in a high-demand field.
Friday the school announced it's launching an associate of science nursing program.
The Georgia Board of Nurses Approved it and the school expects to start taking applications in January.
The program will allow students to complete their nursing degrees in one of two tracks: the traditional path and the LPN to RN bridge path.
"We will have an opportunity to assist LPN's to make to make the transition to RN's in a way that allows them to stay on the job they currently hold," said Albany Tech President Dr. Anthony Parker.
"Our goal in bridging over to the RN program is to support the RN needs of the local hospital and to meet the student needs that other community colleges are not meeting," said Mattie Buchannon, Dean of the Health Care Technology division.
Albany Tech anticipates the RN program will be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools within the next few months.
The traditional track for the program will be six semesters. Albany Tech will begin taking applications for both tracks beginning in January, 2013.
