Paramedics Are Now Eligible for RN Bridge Program at BTC

Paramedics with a current MO license are now eligible to enroll in the RN Bridge program at Bolivar Technical College. Bolivar Technical College received approval from the Missouri State Board of Nursing to offer this program on December 6, 2022 and can begin accepting students immediately. If you are a Paramedic who is interested in staying within the healthcare field, but in a new capacity, this might be a perfect fit for you! This program is designed to get you to your next role quickly and efficiently. You'll spend a summer semester transitioning to a new mindset as an RN, participating in Bootcamp in our amazing Skills & Simulation Center, and getting up to speed to join our returning RN class in the fall. Then, just a fall and spring semester of RN classes and clinical rotations stand between you and graduation! You can learn more about the program here. 

Fall 2022 semester has a colorful start

During the first week of classes, Daniel Leith, BTC Admissions representative, wore a peacock mascot costume to welcome around 150 students and faculty back to campus. There were looks of confusion, laughter and even encouraging words shared. Leith handed out “Advice from a Peacock” flyers to students to remind them to, “stand out, be a colorful character, love boldly, bring joy to others, and strut your stuff” this semester.
