(Springfield) – Beginning in August of 2012, students can begin to pursue a dual degree from Drury and Cox College at Drury’s course delivery site in Cabool. In just four years, students can complete a Bachelor in Health Science with an emphasis in leadership from Drury, and either a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or an Associate of Science in Medical Assisting (ASMA) from Cox College.
Courses will be offered in three modalities: seated at Drury’s Cabool site, blended (seated and online), and exclusively online.
The program can accept up to 36 students for its inaugural cohort (the group ofstudents who will go through the program together). Applications are due by July 20. Those accepted will attend a “boot camp” in August for orientation and technology training. The first cohort is scheduled to graduate in May 2016.
Willow Springs native April Stublefield will manage the first cohort of students.
