BSN Team Featured in Community College Baccalaureate Association’s New eBook

Friday, July 22, 2022

Congratulations to our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) team for being featured in the Community College Baccalaureate Association’s new eBook: “20 Promising Practices to Advance Quality, Equity, and Success in Community College Baccalaureate Degree Programs.” The eBook highlights promising practices implemented by baccalaureate-conferring colleges across the nation that contribute to more equitable education and employment outcomes for students, many of whom represent historically underserved groups.

“Our thorough nomination process uncovered equity-focused promising practices from practitioners responsible for planning and implementing Community College Baccalaureate (CCB) programs nationwide,” said Debra Bragg, president of Bragg & Associates and author of the eBook. “The eBook is a culmination of ideas and resources to help more practitioners design high-value CCB programs to reach students who may have never thought a baccalaureate degree was possible for them.”

Each promising practice profile identifies the CCB degree program with which it is affiliated, how the promising practice works, the available evidence of student enrollments and outcomes, lessons learned and practitioner contact information. Valencia College’s BSN consortium partnership with Seminole State College and Lake-Sumter College is featured on page 14 of the eBook.

Cheryl Cicotti, former Seminole State associate vice president and founding BSN consortium member, praised the unique partnership stating, “The consortium has met and will continue to meet its goals by increasing the number of BSNs in central Florida. Equally important, the addition of the three state colleges’ RN-to-BSN programs did not affect the local university’s BSN enrollment numbers, thus demonstrating the need for these workforce baccalaureate programs.”
