October 13, 2021 – Samantha Labenski (Vice President), Hannah Redding (President), Jennifer Mertes (Treasurer), Samayah Coleman-Smith (VP) and Carly Trapani (Secretary) have been selected to represent students in the nursing program at King’s College.
King’s 1-2-1 Dual Degrees in Nursing (DDN), a partnership with Luzerne County Community College (LCCC), offers students a seamless route to earning the BS in Nursing degree in just four years. The DDN is tailored to the traditional-aged first-year students seeking a four-year degree in nursing.
The DDN is based on students doing course work on both King’s and LCCC campuses. It offers a unique path that allows students to receive two degrees, an AS and a BS in nursing, in four years. Students will spend the first and fourth years at King’s completing the general education and upper-level nursing requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree; the middle two years are devoted to nursing studies at LCCC, at either the main Nanticoke campus or LCCC’s downtown Wilkes-Barre campus, located just steps away from King’s College. At the end of the third year, students will take the National Council Licensure Examination for registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). During the final year, students matriculate as full-time students into the King's RN to BS in Nursing program to complete BS-level nursing courses and any outstanding core to receive their BSN.
Nurses looking for additional information on the RN to BS in Nursing program or the 1-2-1 Dual Degrees in Nursing should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 570-208-5900 ext5210.
