There’s a new way in Springfield to become a nurse – and it doesn’t involve giving up a day job. Cox College is pleased to announce an evening/weekend Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program beginning in January 2018. Classes will meet one to two nights per week, with clinical hours scheduled on Saturdays. In only four short semesters, graduates of this program could earn approximately $43,000 annually as Registered Nurses.

There are only 20 seats available for this program, so register quickly to secure a spot. Application deadline for Spring 2018 is September 1st. Click here to go to the ASN program web page – but if you’re ready to apply, click here.
