If you are interested in gaining a nursing degree, classes are closer than you think. Shorter College in Rome  will be hosting  an open house on August 25th from 3 to 6pm. Located at 20 Riverbend Drive in the Coosa Medical Group building, the open house will allow the public to tour the new facility and meet faculty and staff. `The grand opening marks a milestone in the progress of bringing a Baccalaureate Nursing Program to Northwest Georgia,` said School of Nursing Dean Vanice Roberts. Currently, there are no other pre-licensure baccalaureate programs in this area. Shorter’s School of Nursing graduates will have a unique opportunity to impact the quality of patient care, not only at the local level, but also globally. “A strong component of the School of Nursing will be a Christian health care mission outreach to both the local communities and international population through a study abroad program planned in the curriculum,” said Roberts. “The educational experience of Shorter College School of Nursing graduates will prepare them to provide excellence in service, leadership and patient care, and exemplify the core Christian values of Shorter College.”
