Starting next week, Colorado Mountain College will hold information meetings about its associate degree in nursing.

The associate degree application deadline is Feb. 1 for the fall 2015 start.

This fall, the college also started offering a bachelor's degree in nursing for registered nurses, known as the RN to BSN, with 29 students now enrolled.

The application deadline for the spring start of the bachelor's program is Nov. 15, and classes begin Jan. 12.

To enroll in the BSN program, students must already have earned their associate degree or diploma in nursing and hold an RN license in the state of Colorado, in addition to other requirements.

The program is based at CMC locations in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley and Breckenridge. However, since the program involves mostly online learning, requiring only occasional visits to the college's campuses, working nurses throughout the college's service area and beyond may enroll.
