Kelly's Headshot

University of Maryland School of Nursing

University of Maryland’s RN-to-BSN program at LCC is helping Kelly advance her career while shortening her commute.

Thanks to an inspiring high school teacher, Kelly decided to work in health care. After earning an associate degree in nursing, Kelly started working as a registered nurse for a home health care agency, but she quickly realized that RNs can expand their career opportunities with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She wanted to enroll at the University of Maryland’s School of Nursing (UMSON), but dreaded the commute into Baltimore. Fortunately, she discovered that UMSON conveniently offers their accelerated RN-to-BSN program at Laurel College Center. Kelly credits LCC for making her education accessible and affordable as she works to achieve her goal “to help improve health care as a whole.”
