Orbis Education Expands Nursing Education Program to Glendale, California
Date:8/13/2008

The theory portion of the program is taught completely online by the faculty of OU, and the clinical education component is taught at Glendale Adventist Medical Center by adjunct appointed faculty.

"In California, it's estimated that over 10,000 new registered nurses will be needed each year for the next six years," Briggs said. "Hospitals today are being proactive in searching for ways to efficiently meet the high demand for nurses and our program is the solution they've been looking for."

Also noted in the report, hospital executives are challenged by the overhead associated with attracting and retaining quality nurses. Current efforts to control the nursing shortage are taking away resources better spent on patient care. With the new collaboration in Glendale, dramatic cost reductions are expected to be seen in approximately 15 to 20 months, with cost savings increasing each year.

"Orbis Education provided us with a transparent solution to help educate the nurses our community needs," said Gwen Matthews, Senior Vice President of Clinical Services and Chief Nursing Officer of Glendale Adventist Medical Center. "We now host a fully accredited nursing program on premise without having to manage, recruit or administer anything."

Graduates of the program will earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree through a 14-month curriculum, provided they already hold a baccalaureate degree in another field. The curriculum is comprehensive, encompassing more than 600 hours of online course work and more than 900 hours of hands-on clinical preparation. Theory courses will be taught by University of Oklahoma nursing faculty via interactive online classes that include threaded discussions, real-time web casts, projects, assignments and proctored examinations. Students have the flexibility of
