"I see people that are sick, and I want to help them," Bogar said. She believes it takes "a special person to be a nurse."

Bogar was featured in a Spectrum News 1 report on the demand for nurses, the lack of openings in nursing schools and the way BW's nursing programs are helping to fill the need.

Healthcare talent pipeline

With state-of-the-art facilities, an experienced faculty and one of the best pass rates on the RN licensure exam in the state, BW is a key partner as students fulfill their career dreams and enter the nursing talent pipeline.

"We are excited to build on BW's successful post-baccalaureate BSN with a new four-year program," said professor and chair of nursing, Yvonne M. Smith, Ph.D., APRN-CNS.

"In four short years, we'll have more accomplished BW nursing graduates filling demand in the region's thriving healthcare sector."

State-of-the-art labs

The 25,000-square-foot building features tech-enhanced classrooms and spacious clinical labs where students will practice simulated patient care.

The new four-year nursing program also features off-site clinical rotations at the area's outstanding hospitals and medical facilities starting in year two, in addition to class and learning laboratory experiences.
